The planet Mars has been in the news a lot lately, what with:
- The discovery of water;
- the planet being at its closest perigee in 15 years;
- the 6th birthday of the Curiosity rover;
- The use of “Mars Awaits” in one of the proposed logo for Trump’s “Space Force”. (Still shaking my head at that whole thing)
So, here’s a bit of Mars-related sci-fi for you, a short story I wrote last fall. I hope you like it!
