Stargazing at Home
Child, that’s not a star. That’s Earth.
What is ‘Earth’?
Earth is a planet, much like ours, but closer to the sun.
There are eight planets around the sun, right Momma? We live on the fourth planet.
That’s right, Honey. We live on Mars. Earth was the planet of our ancestors, before people came to Mars.
Who lives on Earth now?
Nobody, Sweetie. It’s a dead planet. The actions of rich, selfish people destroyed it.
How did the rich, selfish people destroy Earth?
They burned it up as fuel, getting to Mars.
