“How could this have happened?” He screamed at all of the scientists around him. None paid any attention. “You!” He yelled as one walked by carrying a tray of test tubes. “Are you the woman who did this?”

“Mars shouldn’t be like this. It should be barren. Red. No atmosphere. How can we investigate this now with all that out there?” Furious, he pointed to the viewscreen.

“Well, Meadows,” Giles said as he returned, “we were looking for life.”
