The future of Mars is being decided now...

A little philosophical thought...

It's humbling to reflect that right now, in all we are privileged to witness, we see the future of Mars being decided.

It's always the starting conditions that affect what comes later...

Just think of that sale of Manhattan Island for traded goods worth 60 guilders. The history of North America would have been different in so many ways...similar perhaps but very different in terms of where and who ....peopled by different Presidents, military heroes, writers and so on...It was all down to that discussion the Native Americans had among themselves as to whether the island was sold.

We are seeing similar historical developments now...it all depends on the skill and vision of Space X and the people at Boca Chica as to what happens in the future on Mars. It all depends on decisions (no doubt already close to being finalised) about potential landing sites, and launch windows.
