We’ve praised Jed McGowan’s webcomics here several times in the past – with their bold graphics and science-based themes, they are smart and thought provoking.
Well, he’s got a new short story: “Uninhabitable“. It’s about what happens when billions of terraforming nanobots are set loose on a planet. It’s one of his best yet, tapping into the vastness and remoteness of time and space, and the endless clash of nature, even on other worlds. If you liked Interstellar (by no means a given) you will like this. (I loved Interstellar.) Unlike Interstellar it will take only a few minutes to read however.
You can buy a print edition for $8, too!
