Peter Dewhurst: The Mission: Occupy Mars

Mars is going to be colonised by you. As humans take this next great leap, so too do we trial a great experiment. A new world should have the chance to have a new order. Can you, the unwashed masses, run a world better than a member of the 1%? Or will the old ways prove to be to convenient for you sheeple.

Kai Oliver: Dog Shelter
