  • We see the universe from a human point of view. We could hardly be expected to do otherwise. But that doesn’t help if we’re trying to assess the prospects for life, even intelligent life, to have developed on other worlds. It could be that life elsewhere is not even remotely as we know it, and our human way of looking at the cosmos is a serious obstacle to knowing that it’s there.

  • Destroying the Cassini spacecraft by plunging it into the cloud-covered surface of Saturn in September seemed a rather dramatic way of ending such a productive mission – perhaps a little like the ending of a grand Wagnerian opera – but it made good sense. The risk of a dead or dying probe careering around the Saturnian system and possibly crashing into one of the moons, and maybe contaminating a potential habitat for extraterrestrial life such as Enceladus or Titan, was too high.

    Contaminate! Contaminate!
