Chapter 7: Living to Thrive
 



Morning, December 1, 2099 (Earth time). Landing on Mars

If traveling to Mars has been dangerous, landing here will be even riskier.  The entry, descent and touchdown may only take six minutes, but the ride is going to be intense.  If we arrive alive, we will need to survive over a year on the surface before we begin our journey back home.

Safely secured inside our landing craft, LifeLander, we are jettisoned from CosmicSea’s rear deck and begin to drop quickly toward the surface of Mars.

Only three previous expedition teams have set foot on this 4-billion year-old world. They all survived the journey, made the most of their resources, lived and thrived on another world.

“There is life on Mars. It is us”!
