At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
Today's question was inspired by Robert Bennett's Xenophobia, which he's writing over on his blog...
What if we sent archeologists to Mars? What if they found evidence of an ancient civilization?
Oh, and if you haven't been following the story, you should go right now and get started.
