Default Re: Science Saturday: The Mysterious Depths of the Universe

A wonderful, fascinating and frightening discussion.
One thing though: I don't see why Richard calls it a "mistake" when a virus moves beyond its original host and expands into other species and multiplies at greater velocity. It seems to me that that would be considered success for a virus, as well as most any organism. That's why we celebrate Columbus Day and the moon landing.
