Try resending it.. :o
"The planet Mars, I scarcely need remind the reader, revolves about the sun at a
mean distance of 140,000,000 miles, and the light and heat it receives from the
sun is barely half of that received by this world. It must be, if the nebular
hypothesis has any truth, older than our world; and long before this earth ceased to
be molten, life upon its surface must have begun its course. The fact that it is
scarcely one seventh of the volume of the earth must have accelerated its cooling
to the temperature at which life could begin. It has air and water and all that is
necessary for the support of animated existence.
"Yet so vain is man, and so blinded by his vanity, that no writer, up to the very end
of the nineteenth century, expressed any idea that intelligent life might have
developed there far, or indeed at all, beyond its earthly level. Nor was it generally
understood that since Mars is older than our earth, with scarcely a quarter of the
superficial area and remoter from the sun, it necessarily follows that it is not only
more distant from time's beginning but nearer its end."
— H. G. Wells, The War of the Worlds (New York:
