In space no one can hear you scream. But because we live on a planet with an atmosphere, you get to hear all of the screams. Lots and lots of them once you become a parent. All kinds, too! Your own, your kids’, your neighbors’, store clerks’…

This website is by no means intended to freak the total crap out of couples with plans to have a baby, or travel in space. Quite the opposite! Babies and interstellar travel are super rad. However, when you look at it (or any 3D ultrasound), the whole process of gestating a new human being starts to seem just a bit science-fictiony.

    Our youngest used to — literally — give me the facehugger when he was hungry and I wasn’t giving him his bottle quickly enough.

    So there’s that, too.

    “Was put in this belly by a grabby, overeager creature.” Sounds like this was written by my wife.

    Love these – use the zombie vs baby as right brain icebreaker before teaching classes – students love!!! as far as Alien vs Baby – How about they both sometimes make a mess on your chest? too vague? Anyway – I do not accept any new ones that are not up to par from my students, so I need to make sure my reasoning on this one is not flawed ……………..

      Glad you like them! That’s amazing you share it with your students. 🙂 I guess that works for Alien vs Baby, but I’m not sure what you mean; why you want to add other comparisons.
