Space creates mutant superbugs...

This is where you can discuss your homework, family, just about anything, make strange sounds and otherwise discuss things which are really not related to the Lancer-series. Yes that means you can discuss other games.

Space creates mutant superbugs...

it's true, read it here! See, I told you that flippin' meteor in South America was more than it seemed to be. No wonder everyone fell ill, it was carrying Andromeda Strain-like supergerms designed by Zeta Reticulan overlords to wipe out mankind, or mutate us into shoggoth-like beasts of burden.

Seriously though, why the flup are we sending weak fleshy humans into space when a sneeze could turn into a super-virulent contagion that could wipe out the planet? It's like I've always said, humans weren't meant to go into space for a whole host of reasons - waste of money, too dangerous, might break the crystal sphere that surrounds the Earth, bad aliens might come to see what we're messing about at, and now supergerms.

Everybody knows that if you go too far into space,

a/ you die, or
b/ you get captured and experimented on, possibly impregnated if you're a human female from a trailer park in Arkansas
c/ then you get mutated
d/ and possibly develop superpowers, but not necessarily
e/ have to turn back before you reach the Moon and fake it in a hangar in Area 51 and lie through your teeth about it for decades or the Men in Black will get you
f/ get "that old-time religion"
g/ lead alien scouts back to Earth who will kill us all, or enslave us

See, we don't have to worry too much about aliens coming here to steal our super secret advanced technologies.


They're too busy laughing at us.

Taw, before cosmonauts or astronaughts are sent up, they spend weeks and weeks in quarantine so that they are completely disease-free before they go up.

also, why does the absense of gravity allows germs to "super-size"? is it those pesky cosmic rays?

<edit>

ah, read the article. so it IS the absence of gravity. wierd huh?

completely-disease free, hmmm? what if they catch a cold on the morning of take off, or they've got something like shingles which can pop up anytime?

I'd have thought that the solar radiation would kill just about everything in space. Heck, we can't even send people to Mars without them developing terminal cancer.

CV: Don't put too much stock in that article, they pronounced the latin name incorrectly.

well, the radiation might kill everything, but not if you're actually inside the space podule where the evil spacegerms are.
