Apart from Earth, Mars is the most populated planet in the universe – at least if the weight of science fiction as evidence is to be believed. Inspired by their imagination the penmen of Mars have colonized the Red Planet with living, dying, or dead civilizations with which humanity usually is on a collision course with devastating consequences. Interplanetary space is crammed with ships dashing between the two planets. Preparations for a major battle or a peaceful coexistence are made on both sides. We – after all – are not alone.
