Shhh, don't give away the trick before we get to use it.
Almost, they are saying "we're smart, but you're stupid, get to work."

It would be interesting to find earth life on one of the solar system's icy moons. We have moon and Mars meteors falling to earth, what are the odds that a rock carrying hearty earth life made it out there?
How am I the only one who voted for Batman?
