Longing For Gravity

You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?

So I am on this space ship to Mars and due to the length of the trip that it takes from the earth to Mars, I won’t be able to return!!! What kind of cruel job is this? You’re going to let me die of old age out there, all alone, on a barre planet?

So yeah, I would miss my life back here on earth, my family and friends. I would miss seeing the sky and the rains and the moon and the birds and the animals. I would miss the streets with shops and stores and restaurants and all the wonderful smells that come up when things are cooking. I would miss people watching, especially watching hot women passing by. I would miss having human interaction. I would miss going out to get a beer or some vodka and having a few drinks.

I would miss tv and movies and the internet. I would miss being able to sit in a cafe for a couple of hours drinking coffee and read a book as the morning passes me by. I would miss listening to new music. I would miss getting a new book to read. I would miss a whole lotta things. How good is Mars a place to live in though?
