Science Fiction is arguably the most important fiction genre that can influence the public to support a Mars Mission. In the past, Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Douglas Adams, Star Wars and Star Trek inspired Elon Musk to found SpaceX. New stories can inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and the general public to support the idea of making our civilization spacefaring.
