Picture of

If you could...
Spend an hour anywhere in the universe, at any point in time, where would it be?
Meet 5 different people, from any point in time, who would they be?
Have any one "superpower," what would it be?

For me:

Place:
Mars, about 70 years ago.

People:
1) Ernest Chappell, actor on Quiet, Please!, a 50's radio show.
2) Wyllis Cooper, writer for Quiet, Please!
3) Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl series.
4) Ernest Emerson, founder of Emerson Knives and the Emerson Combat System.
5) Mikkel Maltha, the keyboardist/ bassist/ backing vocalist for the Danish band CRYOSHELL.

Superpower:
The ability to alter my molecular density, rather like Seth's in "Race to Witch Mountain"

What would you choose?

My hour- probably watching an asteroid or comet hit a planet somewhere.

People:
Stephen King
Stephne Colbert
Keith richards
I will count the mythbusters as one person, so-the mythbusters
Stephen Hawking

My superpower would probably be the ability to go undetected by anything while still retaining all senses.

What is so appealing about Mars, about 70 years ago, as opposed to Mars at any other point in time?

That interests me, were there fish, or slime, or just chemicals?

There was no evidence of humans there 70 years ago. I suppose any other time before ~1950 would be fine, but I just liked the idea of being there around that time.
