So, When We Go To Mars, We're Going To The Lush Happy Looking One, Right?

This is a simulation of the 4 billion year evolution of Mars, from wet and lively planet to the desolate wasteland of today. The video was put together by NASA's Conceptual Image Lab. It's nice, except there isn't a time tracker to let the viewer know how long this process is taking. Since it clearly states that it starts 4 billion years ago, it seems as though the whole thing happened over a really bad weekend.

And part of me likes to think of the video as the Wrath of Khan Genesis video in reverse.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
