They had decided to have a child and they knew the consequences on Mars. They had brought enough carbon in the form of plants and soil to keep them. It was the vanity of immortality that led them to the impasse. At 12 their son was growing up and it was then that they realized that someone must die for the others to live.
News from Earth was filled with horrible consequences of warming from carbon dioxide and it was then that the first solar war began. Energy was abundant on Mars as well as raw materials. Earth was unwilling to trade energy for oil as they had become so mired in their own habit of substance abuse that they could not change.
NASA had actually created the tools of this war by a mistake they made in 2023. A spacecraft was to gain momentum from asteroids with a bungee cord harpoon. What they didn't consider was that multi-body physics is a dangerous game in space. As the asteroid belt was destabilized and orbits became erratic the Earth was stoned into understanding of what they had done.
One of the greatest achievements of Mars was the infinite precision FPU. This was the bow and the asteroids were the arrows.

The difference between standard blender render and cycles is stunning. The image character is so much more realistic. It is all about electromagnetic field changes after all and how they are detected and processed. :)
I won't mention what the signal contains, but factorial expansion of information does not lend itself to physical, linear control. She is giving a lot of hints lately.
Make Inhuman nightly r1896 is really an improvement from what is in debian. Also Blender 2.74 has great improvements. The image is makehuman to .dae to blender rigged and textured with posing. Some after effects are added with gimp. I also discovered video editing in blender, which is nice and easy to use. I created a rigged animated video from makehuman to blender to video in less than an hour. In the process I discovered a new graphic technique that has never been used before AFAIK. That was just discovered by accident when I made a rendering mistake.
Compositing is working well to and blender is becoming a really useful tool. Debian is also a remarkable organization and though they aren't bleeding edge, they do have things that just work. It is a complex thing and a wonderful gift to everyone who is willing to make an effort to be free.
