Was just watching the Curiosity episode Alien Invasion: Are We Ready? Thought it was cool that they said an alien invasion would probably start with kinetic weapons, or even a ground assault, but the most likely, and most effective scenario would probably some kind of biological attack.
They mentioned ways the aliens could modify viruses and then disseminate that virus across the planet to wipe us out.
May the road gangs never meet you. May the wind be fallout-free. May the sun shine through the ashes, hot rain not fall on thee. And until we meet again, may no one hold your flesh in the palm of their hand.

I think the speculation makes sense but I was kind of annoyed that I didn't find out what happened. It could have been an experiment or an invasion or teraforming as was suggested in one of Ethan's panicky speculations.
But who would think that? It seems like it the author wanted us to know that's what was happening that would have been one thing but, to have such a specific situation with all these bizzaro creatures and the only explanation is Ethan's hysterical rationalization? Well then Paul could have been just as right too...
I know they're cut off and randos but it would have been nice to know something concrete.
Also, if I was teraforming a planet, I would not bring those hoppers with me.
While this book seems that a possible alien invasion is happening, and if so it is through a biological attack. I found this aspect to be kind of a let down. It pretty much made me think of Stephen King's The Mist, especially the part about Bosch like monsters.
Also I feel that The great grand father of alien invasion stories, War of the Worlds, pretty well debunked the likelihood of an alien invasion lasting due to their lack of resilience to harmful bacteria that we are naturally immune to. We would likely suffer from the same fate on other planets if we were to colonise in the future.
