Mars

By G.P. Avants

There are two seasons of Mars out at the time of this post. We are privy to the intrepid colonists’ first steps on Martian soil into the discoveries, decision, and dilemmas that defined their future. As they land, settle, explore, and begin their lives on this foreign planet, we get to see it through the gamut if human experience. Here are some of the issues that faced the first years on the Red Planet:

Mental illness

Isolation

Family issues

Death 

Birth

Eco-terrorism

Discovery 

Science & business

Solar flares

Disaster 

Community

Enemies

Regrets

Choices

Industry 

SOS

Patience 

Opposition to public opinion

Microbial life 

A fresh start 

Forgiveness

Marriage 

Children born on Mars

Military involvement. 

Business and resources. 

Crisis brings ememies together. 

Unexpected change in leadership

A decade living away from home

Explore not exploit. 

Changing the environment

If you haven’t had a chance to explore Mars through in this television medium I highly recommend it. I hope you will be caught up the adventure of this fresh exploration. I may never set foot on the Red Planet in my lifetime, but after experiencing the lives of these fearless, fragile, and formidable colonists I understand what it might take to call Mars home.
