Well, time is a fickle thing. It tends to run slowly at some points, usually when you don’t need it
In this blog post, I am going to go into details in the different changes that happens to the Martian Colony over time. The obvious one is that the colony grows larger. With 12 different colonies with different agendas and sponsors from earth, Mars becomes a real life version of the computer game Civilization. A hundred years and multiple generations pass. Most colonists, no matter which colony that they are from view themselves as Martians first and only the place of there ancestry grudgingly. But before the advent of hostilities between the different colonies, the situation changed. The colony’s themselves have a wide range of different problems and issues that must be fixed.

In this post, I am going to talk about what I think will happen to the colony of Mars and how that will effect the story world that I developed. First. Some information about Mars. Mars is cold. Duh. It also has a very small atmosphere with no magnetosphere. Meaning that the solar wind has stripped the planet of its atmosphere over the course of a billion or so years. It also has no air pressure and is regularly blasted with solar radiation. Mars does have water on it. Very important. It was also wet at some point in its history. Meaning that it was warm at one point. The first colonists settle on the surface of mars in pre-fab shelters. They do bring with them very sophisticated 3D printers so that they can manufacture items from the resources that Mars provides. There goal at this point is self-suffencincy. How do they provide all of there needs without relying on Earth.
