Default New rock found!

As a very amateur student of Astronomy for...well, most of my life, one of the most amazing kinds of discoveries in recent years is that of "exoplanets", but most of them appear to be big balls of gas, except for a newly discovered...

ROCKY PLANET

Too hot for life, apparently, but my hopes are for a surly race of sizzling Lava-Men.
If they don't wanna join the Imperium, we can always blast them into submission with jets of cold water.

Well that is cool there will be new dicoveries soon of cooler ones. The Lava men must be dealt with first.

I would like to remind you that as hot as the Lava Men be and as extreme an environment, we have yet to find a species that can withstand the blazing fury of a Hellburner. They like heat, let's give them some real heat and I bet we are the first people to see Lava Men melt. Too bad it will be over so quick.

Now with the matter of the hostile native life dealt with, on to more pressing matters. The choosing of a company to grant a Charter for the exploitation of the material resources of this rock, yet to be named.

Suggestions?

Maybe try it again. Might have been some temporary web flakiness. I got a page of stills from an episode of Farscape that I'm sure was the intended link.

Would lava men be considered one of those species that we could coexist with peacefully, in a celestial sort of way? After all, we wouldn't necessarily be vying for the same resources or territory.

I'm getting an ERROR page.

We must subjugate the nefarious Lava-Men because they have the galaxy's sole supply of groovy lava lamps, and they don't want to share with Humaniti. THEY MUST BE PUNISHED.
