Here I am, on the planet they call “red.”
A manifestation of the humans
Taking pictures, collecting data, sending information
People applaud my presence, but not those here. There’s no one. I’m alone
I’m preparing for the potential colonizers, those funded by the humans; by the billionaires, and by the taxed people living within their governments.
I’m assessing the landscape and viability here, even though it seems that we can’t take good enough care of ours, as if the thin atmosphere will be sufficient, or better.
So I’ll collect, analyze, and share, while the humans try to run their power grids, economies, communities, and supply chains, the fractured ones, on the rich planet. The one with the resources.
