Mars to Stay : Teasers

Mason the Scientist

When John Cabot landed on Newfoundland in 1497, he ordered his men not to advance beyond the distance of a crossbow. I sometimes compare our endeavor to that of the explorers of earlier times. While he feared hostile natives, we fear the hostile environment of Mars. Our lives depend on us getting back to safety in the base if something happens. Mars is no place for taking chances.

Empty newsfeed. Politics. Earthquakes. Draught. I used to follow the news-feed closely every day. Breaking news. Peace treaty signed. Prime minister stepping down. Now everything is so distant, so irrelevant. Places I will never go. People I will never meet. I turned it off. The silence was scary.
