I, and over half the world’s population, manage the urban. Tucson, AZ resists sandy basin basements but wind chimes and sierra houses serve us above ground. Glass craters in secret New Mexico military bases stare at the face of Mars staring back. Homegrown strip malls outnumber skyscrapers here. Robert Zubrin’s Mars timeline has passed but Ira Flato secrets the plan in their present Science Friday conversation.

Life on Mars will make us a moment within a string of accidents, nothing special or unique in the universe, once again.
