Get Beyond The Human

In a post of a few weeks ago, I offered a link to a Web site that helps one to find an actual human to speak to when calling large companies, banks, and the like. This week, however, in celebration of the recent Space Shuttle launch, I invite you to look beyond the human. NASA's exobiology* Web site offers a brief introduction to the fascinating scientific study of the origin, distribution, and evolution of life throughout the universe.

*Exobiology: The branch of biology that deals with the search for extraterrestrial life and the effects of extraterrestrial surroundings on living organisms.
