Not exactly! Lets just say 'We're toast!' may not just be a turn of phrase!

What are you guys rambling about? Anyhow, like the article suggested, it is a great possibility that such planets and such moons can indeed exist. Actually there is even more posssibility that habital planetoid exist as moons, these claims are based on scientific research and analysis. The movie is based on scientific hypothesis, and it reflects that greatly. Great movie by the way, I'd suggest anyone to watch it.

Lol, it turns out Pandora acutally is real: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora_(moon) It is one of Saturn's inner moons and there is also an asteroid named Pandora. Just look at how beautiful the abundance of life on it is!

Perhaps, the universe is vast enough to have an infinite amount of "Pandoras", or any planets containing lifeforms for that matter.

I'm currently playing a game called Borderlands that takes place on a desert-like world called Pandora. Next thing you know, parents are going to start calling their babies "Pandora".

Just look at how beautiful the abundance of life on it is! I wonder if the writers knew that there was already a moon called Pandora.

Hey, I think Pandora is a good name for a girl. She'll probably grow up being call Pan or Dora most of her life, anyways. Besides, it's a really old name.
