  Ok, I officially claim the planet of Mars- every inch of it. I also crown myself, and take the title of Empress Mars. My reasons for doing so, are based on solid evidence that indicates this red/orange planet belongs specifically to me. Here they are:

1. My nickname is Mars
2. According to Astrology- I'm an Aries- Mars is the planet of Aries
3. My favorite color is red. Mars is red.
4. Because I have a good, gut feeling that Mars needs a crazy ruler like myself.


Alright, now that we have that established. Good day to all of you.

The Dignified Empress,
Sincerely,
-Mars

  Are there any good movies about our favorite planet? I watched "Red Planet" tonight and was terribly disappointed at both the predictability of the story and the loose, overbloated plot.

I've heard "Mission to Mars" is equally atrocious. Can anyone recommend any good Mars movies?

BTW, I've procured a copies of both Ben Bova's Mars and Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson.  Thank you for the recommendations.

  Little do they know, from all these unmanned recon-excursions and tabloid fantasy is that, earth, in fact is our species' second home, they will find, as we progress and find better methods for research that Mars is actually a post-nuclear holocaust war-planet. They will find water, ruins and remains under the sand of this once green and life-supporting planet.

This is the image which for some reason I've generally found the most convincing possible fossil. The one you usually seem to see looks like an isolated structure that could potentially pass for some kind of purely mineral crystal anomaly, but the repetative nature of this pattern--yet with randomizations--speaks of a less perfect formation more akin to biological life.

WHAT YOU GET: A Martian Deed, which confirms your registration of the one acre of Mars and gives the co-ordinates of your plot.

The Martian Map so you can see where your property is located. The Martian Constitution and Bill of Rights (I didn't know there was one!) which details the Martian laws, your rights, and of course, the all important laws of THE BIG CHEESE.

  There is currently no Mars-interest group on lj. To that end I have opened this community, though it is up to any who join it to create the flow of information and discussion that constitutes community.

So please, join, introduce yourself, and update us on interesting news, literature, or ideas you have!
