What if aliens show up and nobody cares enough to go and have a look?
Wow, very frustrating and depressing. Don’t get me wrong, the story is great.
If that is the best we can do, then we suck! I hope we will be more curious than this, if we ever make a similar discovery. But I can see it happening just like that. I‘d rather believe in The Martian and that we can be better than this, pull together, pool our resources and do the right thing. Or Elon Musk to the rescue.
My glass is half full. And hopefully space as well! I know, I know, I am overly optimistic. Anything else would be too depressing (again).
Well done, Carrie Vaughn!
