WHEN A meteorite landed with a flash in Quebec last week, people for miles around set out to find the object. But first on the scene, in fact, was an alert herd of Canadian cows, which were found gathered in a circle gazing thoughtfully at the 4.5 billion-year-old arrival from space as it smoked gently at the bottom of a 15in deep crater. There is something oddly pleasing and Far Side-ish about this picture, which confirms one fact: homo sapiens is not the only intelligent species in the wastes of the universe.
