Gregory Benford's "All the Beer on Mars"Posted by Trent Walters at 4:36 AM
"All the Beer on Mars" is a highly probable future: looking for life on Mars only to find that humans had contaminated it in the process of doing so. This is an essentially Mundane story in both theme--anticipate problems but human error is inevitable--and story content. However, some members may reject any space exploration as not furthering the case for improving things on Earth; therefore, this story would not classify as Mundane. Others see a basic human desire for exploration including space, necessitating some practical exploration. A difference in opinion is okay. We're flexible.
