    5. I’m just curious why NASA didn’t try to probe it so that where the comet went maybe our probe would be able to send signals/pictures back to us and/or say hello to some aliens 1,000/billion years into the future, when we are probably going to be long gone.

    6. @multi_masked: Which alien race would want to talk to us? We exploit everything we can to the extreme. I hope we all burn in a fireball. Screw humanity. Nothing humane about it.

    8. When we finally make contact with aliens, everyone will be shocked to find that they’re using wood burning boilers and vacuum tubes. 😀

    9. @NoOneInParticular:
      Ironically, in one of Harry Turtledove’s novels, vacuum tubes are what saves humanity’s technology. Aliens invade during WWII and they detonated nukes in the atmosphere to use the EMPs to wipe out our technology. There were no microchips at the time, so in a way, antiquated technology saved the day.
