James Webb Space Telescope - Merry Christmas!

I’m a bit disappointed that it’s just a hypothesis, but hopefully the JWST can get an observation going. That would actually be an ideal planet given what germs do to us.

On a side note, I hate it when people talk about plant life like it’s the main driver of atmospheric oxygen. It’s not. 99.xx% of the oxygen produced in the Amazon is used up within the Amazon. Cyanobacteria rules!

I wouldn’t go anywhere near a planet with silicon-based life.

Living by the sir mix a lot rules of life? Silicon parts are made for toys.

I’ve watched Star Trek. Hell no. lol

I have some silicon oven mitts. I bet it’d be hot on that planet.

We’re tribbles made of silicon?

No, but the stupid Organians just sit there and watch people die like buttholeheads.

Why? Are you afraid they might turn you into computer chips and adhesive sealants? :stuck_out_tongue:

Considering damn near everything that can kill you here on Earth is carbon based, I can’t see how silicon based life could be any worse. :wink:

Our immune systems only recognize carbon-based life. :wink:

Launch delayed until Christmas morning due to weather because, of course delays!

Grr …


Exactly. At least it’s only one day…

More than likely, if you encountered silicon based life, you would not live long enough to find out.

Or perhaps so as to not have a mid-air with Santa. :wink:

Why might it not be the other way around?

Because on their world, they would outnumber you by millions to one.

I got a pretty powerful immune system…

That’s what they all say … right before they get sick. :wink:

Well then, you answered your own question. :wink:
