I was watching some thing on Mars and sending explorers there. So, I'm sitting here, staring at the blank page, wondering what to "what if" about, and that show came to mind.
My first thought was: What if a mission went awry?
But that's been done. To death. I can think of three instances just off the top of my head. And I'm not even trying hard.
Okay, time to dig a little deeper.
What if some space and/or exploring mission went awry? How would those who sent them react? Would they try again? Would they even know what happened?
Okay, that's been done, too, but at least it's a little better. I'll try harder next week.
