Outer Space
Maimon Schwarzschild

A propos Tom's thoughts about intelligent aliens from outer space: here is the Galaxy Song from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. 

"...And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space/ Because there's bugger-all down here on earth."

The song is classic - and perfectly sweet - Edwardian music hall, by the way.  The Pythons were fond of traditional English things: they were often quite conservative at heart.
