We Are Not Alone!

I was going to do the Holiday Shopping Guide today, so you could all run out and buy great Haikasoru titles for your friends and relatives based on their personalities and whatnot, but instead I figured I’d put up a link to THE MOST IMPORTANT NEWS IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANITY!

Nasa scientists discover evidence ‘that alien life exists on Saturn’s moon’

Researchers at the space agency believe they have discovered vital clues that appeared to indicate that primitive aliens could be living on the moon.

Data from Nasa’s Cassini probe has analysed the complex chemistry on the surface of Titan, which experts say is the only moon around the planet to have a dense atmosphere.

They suggest that life forms may have been breathing in the planet’s atmosphere and also feeding on its surface’s fuel.

Holy moly! Okay, so it’s not quite a fleet of attack ships churning through the inky blackness of space, or even definitive proof of extraterrestrial life, but it’ll do. It’ll do for a slow news week anyway. NASA’s big press conference on the subject is tomorrow—prepare to be disappointed, but today have fun with the idea.

Uh, by the way, in The Ouroboros Wave author Jyouji Hayashi posits life on Europa, one of the major moons of Jupiter. Shucks, he was off by one measly gas giant planet!

The terrifying world of tomorrow…today!

The BBC is reporting that astronomers are puzzled by a strange bright spot which has appeared in the clouds of Venus. Even better, the spot was first observed by an amateur astronomer.*

In what one hopes is unrelated news, I received here in the office my advanced copies of Usurper of the Sun, a hard SF novel (and Seiun winner!) that details in its earliest chapters the discovery of a strange bright spot on Mercury by an amateur astronomer, namely high school girl Aki Shiraishi. Fun novel or horrifying guide to our grim whatsapp plus future of climactic collapse and alien invasion? YOU decide. Oh, I’m sure the Venus spot is just volcanic activity and not aliens breaking the planet apart to build a ring around the sun. Totally, absolutely sure. I have no idea why I created a “Holy crap, we’re all gonna die!” tag.
