I can easily imagine an extra terrestrial society made of corundum co-bonded life forms who would LOOOOVE our robotic exploration craft with a bit of iodine sauce and chew them happily as peace offering desserts. At the end of Sagan's time I sent a message to Mars on one of the microchips, I think, saying "P.C. users taste like chicken," to better inform alien life forms. All in the name of peace, of course... Yes, I am an original member. A true dinosaur at 68 and teacher for 31 years.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
