Poetry by the Iguana, and Other Stories

Many people have unexpected gifts, and the Iguana surprised everyone by telling his view of the galaxy in poetry. Everyone but me, that is. I've always known he speaks in lyrics!

Hi! Zantippy Skiphop here! I tell the tales of my adventures in the galaxy with my friends! Iguana likes to stay in his Earth swamp, so his book got written while I was trapped in an extraterrestrial jail. Don't worry, I escaped, so we are all about to tell you lots more stories!

I'm Now Writing Space News for Active Astronomy!

Exciting news! I'm now writing Space News articles for Active Astronomy! So happy!!! My main focus will be astrobiology, the study of conditions that could allow life to exist on other planets or moons. Hopefully one day that term will include the actual study of extraterrestrial critters!

My first article is on this guy, Curiosity, the newest member of rovers exploring Mars. Curiosity will land on August 5, at 10:30pm U.S. Pacific Time. Curiosity carries the Mars Science Laboratory, and its primary mission is directed towards astrobiology. I'll be covering all the Curiosity news for Active Astronomy!

Please visit and let me know what your thoughts and feelings are about the exploration of our star system!

Apply to be Part of the Crew on The Wanderer!

Our spaceship has been cleaned and outfitted for oxygen-breathing life forms. If you want to be part of the crew, you must pass this test:

Leave your explanation (mathematical proof) anywhere you can find me, since I may be behind the rift in dark matter where reaching Earth signals is hit-or-miss. Really, the best place to leave your answer is with the dishwasher at Ogalmorph's Shapeshifting Cafe, if you know where that is. It's in the Lagoon nebula. That's all I'm telling you.
