Battle for what?
Having researched the planets and moons of the solar system for Solar Explorer, there’s one thing I’ve learned: The solar system is soaking wet.
Earth isn’t alone in having a lot of water on it’s surface. Many of the solar system’s moons and asteroids are mostly made of ice. Sure, they look rocky like the Moon, based on the photos we get back from our robotic explorers, but that’s just because they are basically dirty snowballs that are frozen rock hard.
Which brings me to the reason for this post.
I recently saw Battle LA, a typical Hollywood alien invasion movie, big on effects with a predictably weak script.
In a brief shot that you could have missed if you blinked, the viewer was informed that the aliens were invading for our water, liquid water to be precise, which was supposedly a scarce resource.
What about all those moons?
There’s many, many times the water locked up as ice out there, just apply a little heat.
What’s more, there’s no pesky humans with guns.
