Life on Mars. Is it real? Was there once a civilization on Mars? That’s an age old question of sci-fi lovers! For a long time people were convinced there were people on Mars. So much myth has been tied around the red planet, almost as much as Vega is the main star in a solar system of planets with intelligent life. Think CONTACT with Jodi Foster.
I’m a firm believer in extraterrestrials. Whether they’re good or bad, I’ve no idea, although if they show up, I’m hoping they’re of the ET variety as opposed to Independence Day mutants! One of the stupidest moments of any movie I’ve ever seen was the chick who goes up to the top of a skyscraper and welcomes the aliens only to get torched when the bad ass aliens open fire! It was a given she was acting like a human marshmallow, but even I would show a little caution. Ghosts on the other hand don’t bother me. Go figure. LOL
But here’s a thought. Would you be willing to go to Mars and start-up a settlement? Yep, you read that right.There’s a project in play that is attempting to get a colony started up and running on Mars. CNN has the story from 2013
I’m a risk taker, but I’m not sure I’d be willing to risk everything and travel to a place where it’s hard to find air or water in order to survive, let alone trying to find a way to make a living. Things won’t be easy there, that’s for sure.
This leads me to the question of the day. Would you be willing to leave Earth and head to Mars with the understanding that you could never come back to Earth again?
