[H&F] "On how we are coming to accept that we are alone"

I've a post up at History and Futility remarking how the late 19th/early 20th century expectation that Venus and Mars would be fertile Earth-like worlds has been dashed, how life in the solar system is almost certainly bacterial or similarly simple, and that the dreams of the rich fertile community of planets of old are likely to be unfulfilled for a long time.

Go, read.
