Alien Nation, Part II 

So recent specrometry readings indicate that Jupiter's moon, Europa, may be a b all of acid and peroxide, not salt water as previously thought. Which is bad news for the development of life there.....life as we conceive it, anyways.

As I noted earlier, there's this maddeningly persistent habit scientific journalists (and scientists) have of assuming that life everywhere has to conform to what it looks like on Earth: organic compounds, cells, electricity, etc.

Come on guys! Have a little imagination...that's the fun of being a scientist!
