Wow, that's looking on the not-so-bright side. Here's another angle:

On some of those planets, life forms would find ways to survive. This might explain the ability of life (if there is such an ability) to travel from place to place in comets and other frozen environments. To misquote Frost:

Some say the world began in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to be born twice,
I think I know enough of fate
To say that for conception ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Bad, I know. But here's the science:

That's a fascinating story, Mark. Here's hoping for Europa.

In the meanwhile, I'll ponder the death-haunted Milky Way.
