Colonizing the Red Planet
November 9, 2020
The evening’s festivities have concluded. It is the dead of night, and you are walking back home. The sky is clear, and you decide to look up. There’s the moon, tranquil and calming as ever, illuminating your path with it’s light. And then, there’s something else. It’s small, and you never really noticed it before, or maybe you just never gave it much thought. But it’s there. A small red dot in the dark evening sky.
