Thought for the month

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen.” From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams, Author (1952-2001)

Men from Mars and Penguins from Venus?
Earlier this year we had the saga of phosphine gas indicating life on Venus. Possibly, perhaps and finally not even there. Now we have the Daily Star, that doyen of scientific journals, suggesting that penguins might be extra-terrestrials due to phosphine being detected in their guano. Never mind phosphine, perhaps we have a surfeit of nitrous oxide.
