Remember this? A comic strip by Joseph Hewitt portraying SciBlings.
Well, he’s done it again:
Clever play on the words Diaspora and Panspermia. Just like Seedling Stars, the Sciblings are bursting out of their old sporangia and flying into the deep unknown, landing on faraway planets, adapting to them, geo- and bio- engineering them to fit them better. And of course, except during the Fail Whale moments, communicating across the lightyears via Twitter.
Or perhaps, to stay with the spores, better metaphor may be Pilobolus.
