1940 wants its science fiction story back.

This is damn earth shattering news

We never thought there could be liquid water on a planet so close to the sun, nevermind ice. This has enormous implications; especially when concerning the search for life outside our solar system

So a big rock smacks into Earth 65 million years ago and spreads a ton of organic material out into space where it swirls and twirls until some of it smacks into Mercury and most of it gets fried by the sun.

No evidence pointing to anything otherwise at this point.

You're thinking small. What if there are Mercury women? They're bound to be hot.

"Is your nickname Mercury? Cause you look habitable"


Other feasible adjectives:

Hot
Mercurial
Dense
Toxic
Close to something much hotter

I'd go with:

"Is your nickname Mercury? 'Cause you look Icy Hot."

Mercury is still a hell of a long way from habitable. This discovery really doesn't matter much. We will never inhabit Mercury.

Organic? Is there a new definition of organic that they are using?

Carbon-based. Same as always.

I think the axial tilt + 3:2 tidal locking is keeping some areas at the poles and in larger craters in eternal darkness. That has allowed the ice to stay instead of being boiled/vaporized away.

"Organic" in astronomer-speak means "carbon compounds". That's all it means. Nothing whatsoever necessarily to do with life.

I would have gone with "Is your name Mercury? Cause you look like your crater might be wet."

/chicks dig me

orclover: Organic? Is there a new definition of organic that they are using?


"Organic" just means carbon-based in chemistry terminology, if I recall. So "organic" chemicals can form without life, but not vice versa.

Okay which Farker posted this in the comments:

Given the prevalence of water and organic compounds being confirmed across our solar system, I'm seriously tempted to say it's like God just took a money shot all over our solar system's ass and we're the weird fungus that's growing out of the unwashed crack.

Comedy!

"Never" is an awfully long timespan. Mercury has about the same gravity as Mars, and a gigantic ball of pure iron for a core. Underground settlements for the purposes of mining that iron aren't completely out of the question in the distant future.

But anyway, this discovery is much more about finding out that water and organic compounds can be stable in environments where we previously thought they couldn't. And that impacts the scope of our search for life elsewhere in the universe. No one is suggesting Mercury as a vacation spot because there's some ice there.

Except at the poles, Mercury only gets warm enough to melt lead. Sounds like a good vacation spot. I hear the chicks there are HOT and the guys are light in the loafers. (too obscure?)

No evidence points to what you're saying either. You're doing science backwards.
