What If ?Edit
- Looking to cutting-edge Tech & Scientific Theory for inspiration in: Story Premises, Gameplay Mechanics & wherever a robust imagination can conjure with versimiltude, engageing the "willing suspension of disbelief.
Hot Deep Biosphere TheoryEdit
- Oil on Mars ? A Real Possibility.....
- Professor Thomas Gold at Cornell University has a theory.
- So called "Fossil Fuels" may NOT have been formed from decayed prehistoric plants & critters.
- Rather "Hydrocarbons" formed deep within the planets interior long BEFORE life formed on the Earth's surface.
- There is much more to the theory & it has yet to be validated experimentally but it does lead to some postulations which go contrary to convention.
- And one of those postulations is that MARS could very well have Oil Deposits. Sounds heretical, doesn't it ?
- So much for all my postings about the need to create "Hydrogen Fuel" & "GeoThermal" Tech. Course that could still be done.... But the Oil Derricks could just be modded to pump "Mars Oil".
