BUSH IS RIGHT TO GO TO MARSempty space gif
While I am no fan of politicians, I applaud the recent announcement by George W Bush that men will go to Mars. While the signs of life there are few, theories persist that the Martians may live deep underground, shielding themselves from the hostile planet surface and from the gaze of spacecraft from Earth. The mysterious disappearance of the probe Beagle 2 serves only to confirm NASA rumours that it may have been captured by Martians. If so, we must contact our brothers and sisters from across the inky blackness of space and extend the hand of friendship and say "Don't worry about the probe".
With an ever growing population which is growing ever more obese, earthlings will eventually run out of space and food. Whither shall we go if not to Mars ? Yes, future peoples may live under the oceans of the Earth in vast transparent pods. Yes, the Martians may be a shy yet warlike people. But yet..it is almost within our grasp to make another "giant step" and send deep frozen humans hurtling through space to make contact with the underground citizens of another planet. And that, surely, is preferable to houses beneath the waves.

FOR THE WRECKERED..
The editor speaks
John Crow (above) speaks eloquently of how it is almost within our grasp to send deep frozen humans hurtling through space to make contact with the underground citizens of another planet. However, none of this should distract us from the essential first step of putting our own house in order before going to live on other worlds.

If alien races are indeed aware of us they must surely regard us as ignorant, destructive and dangerous fools. Our recent deep space probes must fill them with alarm. We have just about managed to break our own planet and now we've started firing lumps of metal at Mars. Given the environmental dustbin we've created here in only a few short years, Earth is probably known throughout alien worlds as the anti-social neighbour of the galaxy. If aliens ever do come down and land, it'll probably be to serve us with an eviction notice.

Perhaps that has already happened. Perhaps the proposed Moonbase and the manned trip to Mars marks the start of the process. Perhaps George W Bush knows something we don't.

Last month's poll result.
Issue 9 of wreckered asked the question "Is Scotland Full of A****holes?" The majority of respondents voted Yes, with one reader from Paisley reckoning it was a split vote. Thanks to all who took part in the survey.
