Two hours ago, the Mars Curiosity rover found it. The President has called an emergency meeting - mankind will never be the same. With technology pulled directly from todays prototype laboratories, America sends a crew on a dangerous discovery mission to the Red Planet. Will you figure out the secret before the astronauts do?LONG DESCRIPTION:The Mars Curiosity rover rolls across the dusty Red Planet. On-board cameras detect something shimmering on the horizon. Engineers re-direct it to go investigate. When the rover finally arrives, the cameras capture shocking images of five-fingered fossils embedded in a mysterious boulder, located right next to an unusual stone building. Just as Curiosity attempts to transmit high-resolution photos, the power cuts out.With the reckless ambition of an embattled president, a high-risk discovery mission is planned on a rushed deadline. Its all made possible with technology from a Silicon Valley tycoon who was in the right place at the right time. Equipment is built too quickly- flaws and a Wart are sent to the launch pad.The initial crew balks at the mission for safety reasons, but not family man Adam Alston- hes the consummate professional who will do what his country asks him. And hes nearly broke after his post-astronaut business ventures are quietly failing. This lucky break becomes his last option for saving his family and failing career- perhaps not in that order.Ride along with Captain Alston and his crew as NASA is plunged into a race to the Red Planet with little time to spare. Nothing can prepare them for the split-second back-stabbing decisions theyll make along the way. Will they find out the secret of the mysterious fossils? Or will the human pride they carry to Mars condemn their mission and all of humanity?
