Would Contact by E.T.'s Save Us or Destroy Us? – Paper Causes Web Stir

‘Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis’ is the title of a recently published paper that has been making the rounds and causing a bit of a hullabaloo this past week.

Planetsave Reader Survey!!

We’ve got thousands of subscribers on RSS, thousands of followers on Facebook (yes, that’s our Facebook page), nearly a thousand of followers on Twitter, thousands of email subscribers, and tons more daily readers who just come straight to our site or even have our site set as their homepage. But, beyond some basic demographic information, what we’ve learned from the handful of readers we’ve gotten to know quite well, and what we can glean from examining which posts get popular and how you respond to them, we don’t know much about you!

Top 20 Planetsave Stories in May

Hello Planetsavers! I thought I’d start doing a monthly wrap-up of our top 20 posts for people to have a glance at. Many of the top stories this month, as you’ll notice, were clearly tied into major world news events. Google is the main traffic driver for the large majority of sites on the Internet and ours isn’t an exception. Covering environmental news consistently, this often results in the biggest news stories rising to the top.

It is a clear leader in Technorati’s “Science” and “Green” categories. In the Science category, Planetsave is currently #11, with just a few NASA blogs, […]

I’ve been working as editor of Planetsave for almost 6 months now. (Wow, that’s hard to believe!) In this time, I have continually been trying to think of good ways to engage our reader community.
