Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW: NASA; panspermia; exobiology; planetary quarantine;

Node: Abelson was an eminent geophysicist, and for some time editor of
Science magazine.  He was particularly hostile to the prospects of exobiology,
 and equally of the need for sterilization of spacecraft.

Cf Sagan responses.
