Life on other Planets (and moons)

Post by soft revolution » Thu Feb 07, 2008 11:12 am

I've just read this article about mars on the bbc website - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7228640.stm - which has reminded me of an old astronomy book I have from the 1920's which decares that "mars has a rich red colour due to the wild lichen that grown on its surface".
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

I've also got an old astronomy book that has loads of hilarious stuff imagining how "one day man might walk in space" and has a graphical illustration of a man in a helmet powering himself round space with a small dust-buster sort of vacuum cleaner thing

You'll all thank me for starting this thread in 50 years-ish.
