First, you would be photographed and finger printed. Then you would be required to pass through a machine that would search even your insides for weapon possession. And then psychiatrists would have to examine your brain for mental fitness. Meanwhile, Interpol is double checking your past for any hint of crime record.
If you pass all of these, you would then go to moon for space travel orientation and survival drills. The course is rigorous because it includes how to survive on zero gravity, survival without oxygen, and how to survive below freezing point. If you pass that, then you have to think of how to pay your ticket fee to Mars. Because amount is equal annual budget of poor nations. And because we are not going to turn to spirits and fly to Mars.
Since Mars is a very cold place, departure to planet will be in this order. Those who live in polar regions-- coldest spots on earth -- will have opportunity to go first. In that case, Greenlanders and Netherlanders in north, and Australians and New Zealanders down under, would make up first settlement in Mars. ‘Lucky' folks. The Europeans and Americans would follow. Of course Africans who are sun- friendly, would bring rear. Pity them. They are always coming last
When good people would have been ‘spirited' to Mars, a rocket would be sent back to earth with five to burn terrorists, murderers, robbers, and religious fanatics. (Since they are not with us, they are against us.)
Up there in Mars, there would be no terrorist, because no one is allowed to carry guns. Except governors of Mars who made Martian dream a reality. And in an atmosphere of peace, we recline on red planet and drink our red wines -- made in Mars of course.
Many years after, story would be told to our grand-children of how a certain earth was destroyed. And they would look down from Mars and pity former planet earth. But I fear that after our generation is gone, some terrorists would spring up from Mars, and our grandchildren, sorry, opporunity children, would destroy planet and head for Jupiter, and pass on story to their grandchildren.
Now let journey begin.
