Tarantula (1955)

Always an enjoyable film. Clint Eastwood was the fighter pilot.

Selections from the “What If…” section of Roy A Gallant’s Our Universe. Here, concept art for potential aliens in our universe is presented. Included are the sentient ice cube Plutonian Zistles; the Jellyblimps; and the Stovebellies of Titan, among others.

Notably, two separate species appear to travel by the power of their own flatulence.
