    This is a big wow. I believe the race to space has already been done. What we are finding was built by us way be for we made it to earth and we just forgot where we came from. History will repeat itself. We are the gods we made time travel happen. All of the markers are from a more advanced US. And one day when we can see that every generation gets dumbmer we will see what is killing us now already did in another world and we had to find earth. Now we look to mars as our next home. But will we remember?
