Maybe there should be a time lapse space cam… with all those asteroids zipping close by I'm sure we could get some stunning photos before and after…

Oh sure - make the place look that great. Those Martians are gonna have their jealous eyes on the place now. I can just feel the dark plans being drawn up right now!

There's probably some galactic real estate agent right now placing our listing. It's a nice little fixer upper, conveniently located near galactic shopping centers. Several large oceans, plenty of fresh water. Slight infestation problem. You'd better make an offer fast, this place won't be on the market long!

I love this image...Texas is Dead Center in the pick...you can see Galveston Island and the Louisiana River Delta exquisitely clear. Even Manhattan Island is there.
