Ten billion dollars might not change the course of human history, but it was worth a try. When five aging billionaires formed the Cartel, they all agreed humanity's past was a muddle, a vast bloody... More > wasteland, with only a few bright moments of inspiration. Humanity's self-definition needed some work, and that work was not being done on Earth. Over a decade, the Cartel bought everything required to send one-hundred-seventy-five people, with one giant leap of faith, to colonize Mars. In 2014, three ships left Earth to rendezvous ten thousand miles past the Moon. Here twenty agile astronauts transformed thirty modules to create one unified ship, the Erasmus. Eight meters high in most places, eighty meters wide and eight hundred meters in length, this ship would transport the colonists, and remain in orbit around Mars...just in case someone wanted to come back. Most of the crew had no intention of coming back.< Less
