In a bid to determine the identity of the remaining crew of [[U.S. Outpost 31]], [[R.J. MacReady]] developed a rudimentary blood-test involving a heated copper wire and samples taken from the men. Noticing how every part of the [[Norris-Thing]] had an instinctive desire to survive, MacReady realized that a creature's blood would attempt to flee from a hot needle. Dipping the heated wire into the petri dish containing [[Palmer]]'s blood, the organism unexpectedly reacted, jumping out of the dish with a shriek. Shocked, MacReady dropped the sample to the ground, where it promptly liquefied and fled.
