|The Dawn of a New Era (I'm serious!)|
You might notice that things seem a little bit jumbled right now. In addition to a general update
of the files, profiles, and indexes of Red Colony.com, there has been a change in the mission of this site.
Brian Rudo, Jim Keener, and I have written several articles on Red Colony.com over the last few years, as you can
see in the new Article Index. But when it comes to the colonization of another
planet, three authors' ideas are not enough. More importantly, articles should not be forced to restate what
Martin Fogg or Robert Zubrin have already written. Articles should be unique and imaginative! The field is young
and limitless, and no one knows for sure what our boundaries really are. Ideas should not be based on
one or two individual's scientific hypotheses. This is science fiction at its finest, and Red Colony should
focus more on the 'fiction' than the scientific equations. Other sites have their thirty-page scientific papers
and graphs. The Mars Society focuses on lobbying in Congress and is tied behind NASA and its budget. Let us be
the ones with no restrictions and with endless opportunities. Our community is thriving and each visitor has
the potential to add a very unique part to this evolving field. Let us be the innovator... let us go down in
history as the site that awakened a sleeping world to Mars. We can do it. You can help.
Submit your imagination.
