George Carlin was right. The universe wants plastic! The universe wants plastic so much that Mars already has it.
NASA’s latest rover, named Curiosity, has discovered plastic on Mars. It may be a trace of a long-ago civilization on Mars that just faded away. They did leave a trace of their existence: plastic!
Perhaps more exploring and digging will find plastic artifacts. Maybe Curiosity will discover a shred from a plastic bag. Could there be plastic packing popcorn beneath the surface of the Martian soil?
We will have to wait until the analysis results are in. We could see George Carlin’s observation on the universe proven true again.
