A team of Antarctic scientists find a UFO under the ice...and a frozen specimen, twenty million years old, of an alien race...

This is definitely from the 1930s. Mankind is smarter and tougher than the alien they thaw out. The ending is a reassuring one. Grah! Mankind! Grah grah grah!

I feel like the Carpenter film version is the story as it should have been. The more honest answer is that we don't know who's infected. We can't be sure. You have to keep doing the tests...you have to think up new tests to work around the ability of intelligent beings to learn. You can't rely on things working the same way forever...

"There," Carpenter said. "Fixed it."
