Earth


Once upon a time the humans lived on a planet which they named Earth.  Earth was a great place, filled with trees, rivers, people, cities, towns, schools.  It had everything.  It was the only known planet that could sustain life.  The earthlings (Humans) invented space travel, they could now explore the cosmos!  That was a HUGE scientific feat for them.  Technology was growing fast for the humans, every two years technology would be 10x better than it was before.  It was growing FAST!  The humans invented tiny computers that they put in their pockets, they called these smartphones, an upgrade to the original phone idea.  The humans went on like this for hundreds of years.  100 years after they invented space travel, they had upgraded it so much that they could now go to other planets, not just their moon.  They didn’t really find many reasons to do this though, the main reason was, well, science.  Science never ends, and the humans liked that.  So they sent a team to inspect this planet next to theirs, they got there and it was mainly water, they had to give the rocket a floaty at the bottom just so it wouldn’t sink, they looked around and only saw a few grassy islands, they never took off their helmets, for fear of this new world.  “This is it?” one of the crew members said].  The concluded that nothing but the water here was scientific enough to bring home, since at home, they had all these things already.  The humans headed home, with a slight sense of disappointment, all they got was water!  Fast-forward 100 more year (200 years since space travel) and the humans are in danger, their Earth has become so polluted that they have to start using their space travel methods to see if this other planet, just like theirs, could sustain life just like theirs.  People were dieing, the air was becoming poisonous.  Scientists worked fast to get a crew on a rocket.  In the 100 years since the first mission, they found out how to create their own life, more specifically, clone humans, but it was still faulty.  They sent a crew, and cloned human cells to this new planet.  The mission was a go, the humans and their cells were heading toward this new planet.  Then… the rocket crashed, killing the crew members, with no way of knowing if the other planet was ok, the scientist gave up and everyone on Earth died.  Back at the crash site the human cells had exploded into the water, causing them to evolve.  After millions of years humans in their cavemen form appeared, thousands of years later, the renaissance, later is what the new humans called the 1900s (they were keeping time) technology was booming, every 2 years it would get 10x better.  Around 1997 the humans launched a rover to a red planet next to them they named Mars, recently in the year 2015, the rover found water on mars.  What the new humans didn’t know then, is that the water they found on mars, was evidence of their predecessors, the original humans.
