Earth isn't bad, ya know? There is still lots to discover here. Like a place that is hot, harsh, dry, out in the middle of the ocean somewhere - but has species of flora and fauna that are not found anyplace else on Earth.

Socotra is in the Indian Ocean, isolated from mainland Africa. It has trees that look like mushrooms, and plants that grow in rocks with no soil. And it has a desert rose that looks like it is growing inside an elephant's leg! Amazing.
