One Way or Another, the Human Race is About to Colonize Mars
The Mars Key is a stunning sci-fi thriller based on real science and several prominent theories about the relationship between the Red Planet and Earth—mixed with some highly intriguing “What If” scenarios that make this story more real and compelling than all of its predecessors.
The Mars Key is an exhilarating heart pounding adventure involving our understanding of Mars, space travel and everything else we haven’t considered or don’t yet comprehend.
The Key holds the answers to the deepest mysteries of the universe. Used wisely it can fulfill our most profound dreams and desires, but if misused it can lead to our complete destruction.
Although the story deals with the initial colonization of Mars, it also addresses such concepts and issues as:
Technology that can create an unlimited supply of Matter in any specified form
The future of Artificial Intelligence
Technology that can manipulate the fabric of space-time in any conceivable way
This is the first installment of what promises to be a series of sequels.
Author’s Side Note
Most of the world’s leading scientists agree that the human race must expand out into space beyond Earth in order to ensure its survival. Mars is the best place to start that expansion - and it’s no longer a daydream lingering in the distant future
The Future is Now!
In 2012 an upstart space exploration company called Mars One told the world that it was seeking people who were willing to go to Mars and establish a colony. Sounds crazy? Well, not really. After going to the moon in 1969, the truth about why we hadn’t sent further missions out to Mars was due more to the receding lack of willingness to finance the mission rather than our ability to actually implement it. But, at least, Mars One broke the ice and got the project rolling again. Thus far, Mars One is telling the world that it will establish the first human colony on the Red Planet. The only catch is that it will be a one way trip—you go there and you stay. Oh yes, they’ve basically figured out how to pull it off. Properly done, it’s doable, and, who knows, it could just succeed, and they figure to land on Mars sometime in 2027.
As of March 21, 2015, Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, NASA’s primary space transport contractor, confidently announced “I think we’ve [SpaceX] got a decent shot of sending a person to Mars in 11 or 12 years”—right on schedule with Mars One. The basic difference is that SpaceX plans to make it a round trip.
Get used to it, one way or another we’re going to inhabit the Red Planet very soon. In fact, the first people to set foot on Mars are already walking among us. The bigger question is
“What will we find when we get to Mars?”
