It is 2222 A.D. The Earth is bustling with a variety of life forms and a rapid growth in population has driven humankind to seek inhabitable alternatives. Earth's vast oceans, once pristine and bearing only marine life have likewise become inhabited beyond its once forgiving capacity.
Space emerged as an exclusive alternative.
Motivated by a grand and universal human need scientists locate Icarus, a planet harboring similar atmosphere located within the familiar realm of The Milky Way galaxy. Located about 13-light years from Earth, it is an achievable journey through coordinated efforts. The vast distance of seventy-six trillion miles remains a humankinds most ambitious intention limited by vessels restricted to one quarter the speed of light, the enduring journey digesting fifty-two years of human life. Without the advent of genetic bioengineering the excursion would remain unpalatable, and despite the overwhelming needs of a sweltering species. Death has faded into history, buried as an insidious memory forgotten in unanimous popularity and found only by burrowing limited literature referencing a past long gone.
Icarus is as a twin sister to Earth, similar in size and its relative position to a life supporting star. Its sun hovers in the sky as an ominous red dwarf each rise and setting the messenger of an approaching destiny. A quarter the mass of Earth’s sun, it’s more limited benefits offer restrictive regions capable of supporting inhabitance, its illumination a docile point two percent of Earths host star. Its abbreviated capacity draws planets into a more withdrawn orbit, subjecting the planet to intensified radiation and preventing rotation leaving the planet locked into a divided environment of perpetuated darkness and daylight irrevocably consistent.
Icarus’ surface is primarily stone although warm enough to sustain water, the foundation of life, to include alien. Our explorative devices have determined the presence of existing creatures, yet remain incapable of conclusion of their behavior, essence or indeed intention.
The luxury of explorative time exhausted, a probe is not hailed in advance of the intended journey. A team of ten scientists will travel in haste to explore, investigate and document. Specifically conditioned mentally, physically and psychologically for the expedition and the varied environment found upon their destination the crew faces the challenge of a century of preparation beyond their arrival. Aware of their alternative options, the Earth’s moon bearing nearly non-existent resources and Mars oppressive atmosphere, approximately one third more than Earth’s gravity the team of engineers, geologists, chemists and biologists proceed toward the intended Icarus.
Mars remains, nonetheless an intended target of colonization and despite its notoriously inhibitive environment. Inspired by hope, and supported by determination humankind will abide its time, adjusting its population in an ever-expanding development of Mars and endure the extensive century of awaiting the preparation of Icarus.
The boundaries of life continue to expand.
