One of the last pristine environments on the planets is introduced to modern microbes by drunk Russians and modern machinery, more at 11.

I thought it was pretty obvious that they don't know what they're doing, considering that Second Impact is running 12 years late.

I read a story that was based on The Thing's point of view. I was sad when the story said in that final movie scene with MacReady and Childs, that Childs had been infected and MacReady was the only one who hadn't turned.

Humans haven't yet, and we made it to the moon, so it's up for grabs.
