You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?
Did anybody bother to tell us what our mission would be? Don’t you think that would be important? If they just say “mission” it’s likely you have been duped. Isn’t that what your older brother used to say to you when he wanted to get rid of you; “Hey, Johnny, I got a secret mission for you – get lost!”
First of all, Mars is out of the question. It is hostile there. If the long journey does not assure my return the atmosphere for sure. If that could be overcome there would be the hostility of the Martians toward Earthlings. All the bad press they’ve gotten over the years, it is likely I would not be granted entrance or asylum.
I wonder if they have movies about Earthlings invading Mars? My being there would only reinforces those fears.
At any rate here is a link to the conclusion to the story Quarterbacks, Quiet, and Quenching, entitled I Had A Dream.
