The problem is that reality, unlike imagination, has limits. We can talk about tentacle dinosaurs with super powers laying waste to a martian world of elves filled with daffodil trees and cotton candy seas. While imaginiticve, it's no more supported in reality than any of the (admittedly more mundane) imagination being utilized by this author.

I agree. You go first. And we'll all go next. I call your bluff. Lol
I really dont like this defeatist idea that humans should all die just because your not having a good time.
Anyways. Finding similar isotopes in the sun scorched atmosphere of mars would really be no surprise. You would find many radioactive particles as there is not enough atmosphere to deflect or absorb them.

Reminds me of a joke:
A preacher was giving his sermon and noticed a visitor new to the church.
At the end of the sermon, he asked the question: "Who wants to go to Heaven? Stand up!"
Well...everyone stood up except for the new gentleman. He looked around at those standing around him, but never made an attempt to stand up.
Thinking that the gentleman did not hear, or perhaps didnt understand he repeated the statement again.
Once again, the gentleman just sat there looking around curiously.
After the service was done, the preacher stood at the door shaking hands and exchanging pleasantries with the members as they left.
When the gentleman stepped up and shook hands, the preacher could not resist.
"I couldnt help but notice...it seemed as if you did not want to go to Heaven when you die. Why is that?"
To which the gentleman replied:
"Oh! When I die! I thought you were getting a group together to go now!"

I think we will destroy ourselves without any outside influence, long before we have a manned mission to Mars.
