Despite the best efforts of everyone involved, something truly nasty escaped Earth. They call it giardia, a microscopic organism that their Planetary Protection Officer called “pretty dumb” and “not too bad, really, a week of digestive upset and then it’s over.”

Yes, Earth has a Planetary Protection Officer. They have a Planetary Protection Office, and have had one since they were sending probes around their own solar system.

Please Help, Someone Stole Our Robot
Last night (3/26/16) someone broke into our trailer and stole our robot, tools, and batteries. We have a backup robot but it is not nearly as well made/polished as this one. We have alerted the police/newspapers but need to find this ASAP before the thieves try to part it off. If anyone in the maple valley/covington WA area has any ideas where it could be, please email trc@tahomarobotics.org with the info. (P.S.- If you are the person that stole this, please just drop it off at the tahoma high school, and we might not press charges) (P.P.S.- The collector and shooter were disconnected at the time of the crime, we still have those)(P.P.P.S.- Just drop it off and drive away or something, we don't need to know who it was)
