GeekSpeak – Is it moral to eat Europa’s aliens? Join the discussion Saturday Sept 28th at 12pm SLT

If we find alien life on another planet or moon, what will we owe to it?  Should we feel that we are responsible for its conservation, as we would if it lived on Earth?  Should we leave it alone and not allow anyone to land there?  Should it be the law that colonies are forbidden on inhabited planets?
Or should people be free to kill the aliens?  Free to eat them?  Free to take home alien trophies to hang on the wall?  Free to make them work for us?
Would it make any difference if the aliens were advanced?  Or if they were intelligent?  Or aliens that look like humans?
Come and discuss the laws that will apply when we move out to the rest of the galaxy.  Bring recipes for alien meals.
IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for new subjects.
