Did you know the US actually has a "Men in Black" type of bureau....

They are called the Planetary Protection Bureau. And part of their job is making sure that when we travel to other planets or the moon, we are not bringing any "alien" cells back with them.

How crazy is that??

  • The second part of what they do is make sure that everything we send in to space is "cell free" so that we do not alter life in other areas of the universe...

    Sorry, I just thought it was neat! Seeing as how the Scientific community still denies the existence of "alien life"

  • Actually anon... Yes. Like it or not, an amoeba from another planet would be alien life... Small as it may be, it's still life. And guess what, if it's not from here, it's alien...
