Planetary melting pot opens up new market opportunity
So with all this water (ice) drifting around the two planet system, presumably all it will take is for enough to make touch down and liquify on either or both of the planets, then the arrival of some amino acid building block chemistry (unless those materials are already captured within the comet debris), and hey presto! - a new customer base, ready and waiting in 2 billion years or so!
I say we all 'friend' them now on FB and give them ID cards and banking/credit facilities - what, too soon ? But think of the sales advantages and profit leverage. Only 12 light years distant, surely we should start making contact with leafleting at the very least, that's a cheap, cost effective and easy way to reach out to new customers.
Dear Mr / Mrs green/blue algal Blob, did you know you could now get up to 30GB Wi-Fi broadbland and free unlimited weekend calls, (wait - what's their orbital interval, a weekend could be something like 1 Terra-month long!, better give that one some more thought).
