The article they link to in the Atlantic is a good read that delves deeper into what we might look for and what the evidence we leave behind might look like far into the future.

Isn't it?

The Atlantic surprises me with the quality of their reporting, from time to time.

The Atlantic used to be one of the great news outlets though, they've just had to tone down their quality in the past decade or so in order to survive. Occasionally, they remember how to write a good article.
