Hakan Tendell gave me this prompt:
You're on a mission to Mars together with twelve men and eleven other women. Your mission is to establish a colony on Mars, but you're only halfway to Mars when most of the crew have gone mad because of various reasons, and you've lost contact with Houston.
Here's the deal...
In sixth grade science there was this project. I was supposed to, using a 2-liter bottle, create a model of a space station that would endure life. I had to figure out the logistics for food supply, water and oxygen, entertainment, the whole gamut. How would people work? Provide for themselves? Exist?
That was one of the hardest projects I ever did.
My brain works no better at creating a scenario mid-way to Mars. An astronaut I'm not, and I'm afraid I don't have the right skill-set to pretend I am.
So sorry, Hakan. I realize this gives me a failing grade...
Incidentally, I'm not opposed to cheating! Anyone want to do this prompt for me? You want it, it's yours. ;)
