The Realest Aliens (March 2015)

In this month's "The Littlest Aliens," you read about the hunt for tiny life in outer space. Where do you think the first aliens will be discovered? Do you think we will ever discover non-microscopic aliens, like the ones in movies? Share your theories!

Hey! Who are you calling microscopic?! I have a huge army of hideous alien monsters at my beck and call and I've got half a mind to send several Nydus Worms into your base. They will explode out from the ground and spew my armies from their jaws, and aforementioned armies will TEAR YOU ALL APA-- wait, what's that? Oh Kokopelli, you were standing there listening the whole time.

[Stops flying pie with telekinesis]

Really, I should have sensed your presense.

Why did this issue not discus TARDigrades In Space? TARDigrades In Space have the best abbreviation ever.

Now, we are discovering a whole form of life on Eath that is relatively new. There are microbes that can EAT ELECTRICITY and BREATHE ROCK! Other than having the coolest superpowers on Earth, they are also proving that life can exist in extreme forms. Also, I have to say: tardigrades. They are very awesome, and can survive space's vacume. I think we will find alien life underneath Europa's ice, or somewhere else surprisingly near.

(I notice we're no longer debating about whether there is life, but now where we will find it). Sorry for another really long comment,

P.S. As for non-microscopic life, it's really unlikely that it will be "like the movies." It's doubtful whether an intelligent species could even communicate with us, or understand our speech
