Longing for Gravity: You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?
Not a thing, not a single thing, just the persons, the people who I have come across, the people whose lives I have touched and has left an indelible mark on my life as well. Those are the things I will miss the most.
Admit it, it’s seldom that its the things about a place that we miss whenever we move, most of the time, it’s the people, the faces, the names that we would miss the most. And more to the point, humans, well, homo sapiens–if you subscribe to the idea of life on mars, are the most exclusive component of our blue planet–which ain’t so blue anymore, sadly.
