Fascinating and intriguing, finally a place suitable to dump Steven Harper onto.

There must be a number of similar planets scattered throughout the universe. Just imagine all the fascinating things out there in space that we don't even know about.

It's interesting how arrogant we are about finding water outside our own planet -- assuming that the development of "life" has to follow our own. I could see spirit beings not needing water, or anything else we know of, for that matter. Maybe we're hoping to save ourselves by moving on, before our greed overwhelms what we've been given. Can't hold my breath for that, although being the last person left here to reclaim the planet might not be bad LOL.
