image for Hubble Space Telescope Discovers Giant Cockroaches
The Revolting Truth About Outer Space

Houston TX-- NASA today released very depressing classified information from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Outer Space is infested with gigantic cockroaches. The roaches are 'hundreds of miles long' and swarm just outside Mars orbit. The HST has also imaged other gigantic vermin including fleas, water bugs, spiders and rats. The revolting pests are no danger to the earth, but they make interstellar space travel 'completely impossible'.

NASA spokesperson Dr. Karl Saygun is in charge of the sad news. "NASA has known about this for five years but we wanted to keep it a secret. It's just too revolting." said the doctor. "The velvety blackness of space is caused by roaches. They infest the Milky Way and probably all other galaxies. When you look at the sky at night you're looking at trillions of disgusting, gigantic bugs."

The roaches 'don't like sunlight' and stay far away from our planet, according to Dr. Saygun. Sadly, humans are trapped on this planet forever. The vermin would eat any human venturing past the orbit of Mars. It is unknown how the critters evolved to live in space. They have probably lived there for "billions and billions of years", said the doctor.

"We don't have to worry about Klingons or Romulans or anything like that." said Dr. Saygun "They would never get past the bugs."

"We used to think Outer Space had a mystical beauty, now we know it's just revolting. It's just sad. No one will want to go there anymore." he glumly said.
