No Moon Germs On Apollo Crew—Space Germs

Above you see the front page of the Houston Chronicle from July 25, 1969.

The Apollo 11 astronauts had returned from the moon and had been found to have no “moon germs.”

That must have come as very good news.

This story says that salmonella germs launched into space came back more potent.

This article suggest that sunspots may cause flu germs from the stratosphere to infect people on the surface of the Earth.

Here is an article about the possibility that a meteor brought a rain filled with space germs to India.

This story expresses that we are sending Earth germs to Mars.

The world and the heavens are filled with germs. Bring your hand sanitizer whether on Earth or in space.

  1. People use too damn much hand sanitizer. Current constantantly hand-sanitizered kids are going to grow up warped and make bad choices. I am a manager at a major pet products retailer and I gave a field trip tour to a troop of Girl Scouts. These are the Uber-Liberal San Jacinto Girl Scouts who insist on comprehensive contraception education including teaching that abortion is usually OK. But they were all regimented hand sanitizers to the max. I used hand sanitizer only twice and emphazized each time it was not for my benefit but for the sake of the next animal I was about to handle.

    I fear our germophobic culture may grow up to have more allergies and adolescent-onset asthma. Or perhaps some flu virus will beat the sanitizer and spread among the middle class paranoids. Maybe an offshoot of MRSA (which has recently overtaken HIV as a killer in the US) will deplete the paranoid upper middle class and leave the wealthy and the working poor to sort outvtheir differences.

    Is it horrible to speculate that the paraniod classes might simply start dying and thus solve all our problems?

  2. I had not considered this prospect. I suppose it is possible. It would be certainly be a case of the law of unintended consequences.
