starwars explanation of "star jelly";


The exogorth, colloquially known as the space slug, was a gigantic species of toothed gastropod. They were silicon-based lifeforms that survived in the vacuum of space by making their homes in the caverns and craters of asteroids. They fed on the minerals of asteroids, various stellar energy fields, and mynocks (another silicon-based lifeform). The average adult space slug grew to about 10 meters in length[1], however their have been instances of near-kilometre long specimens[1]. Some slugs were known to continuously grow to sizes that rivaled capital ships in sheer bulk, with some weighing over a million kilograms.

I'm pretty sure the Creepshow bit was largely taking from HPL's Colour Out of Space...


The professors tried it with a geologist's hammer and found it was oddly soft. It was, in truth, so soft as to be almost plastic; and they gouged rather than chipped a specimen to take back to the college for testing. They took it in an old pail borrowed from Nahum's kitchen....


Looks like slime mold to me. There's lots of different varieties of it, but this variety is the strangest of the types as it looks gelatinous. We've seen it here in FL a few times, usually after a good rain.

Perhaps, as it lands in an already life filled world, it is quickly destroyed or integrated by other life, however... if it were to land on a life less earth, one with only the pre requisites of life, ie water and warmth, then it would survive and thrive.. and after 4 billion years.. man arises.

Lol.. god sperm>??? the earth is the ovary.
Makes a lot of sense to me!

If I ever find any star Jelly I will have to see what it tastes like. Maybe it would be good mixed with strawberries and sugar and spread on toast
Studying Alchemy has got me into more than a little health problems over the years

The Legionnaires bacteria can piggyback on protozoa to keep it alive.

Maybe they've airdropped the slime to trim the world population. Gives people something similiar to "pneumonia" and most of the hospitals wouldn't correctly diagnose it as Legionnaires bacteria.

Heck of a good way to kill off alot of people without anyone knowing the real cause isn't it??

If it actually does come from a meteorite, panspermia is as good a theory for what this stuff might be.

God maturbates?

Is that in the Bible? 'And Lo...the Lord cracked one off on Sunday, as it was a slow work day...' think i remember reading something like that once.


You beat me to it; Panspermia it is..

A "weird" green slime said in folklore to appear at the same time as meteors hit Earth has been found in a birdlife park in Somerset. The RSPB have appealed for help in identifying the slime, which is said to be scattered on grass banks close to pools and lakes around Ham Wall Nature Reserve, near Glastonbury..

I thought you were already like Superman, buddy. Haha
This stuff would likely prove to be more akin to kryptonite if ingested.


"Space Slime: part of a well-balanced diet!"

I'm sure the "experts" are hard at work on this too.

i agree i would probably eat it and see what happens.

I just had another thought about what this could be.

What if it is some sort of liquid ozone. I know that liquid oxygen and such are very cold, but could this be some sort of mix of gasses found in the air/ozone that were compressed by the meteor entering the atmosphere?

I was thinking along the lines of something like the black goo in prometheus but then there would be DNA in it.

Anyway, I have never seen any of this goo anywhere in real life only read about it.
