In the 1990s Kim Stanley Robinson wrote "Red Mars," the first of a trilogy of novels exploring human terraforming of Mars. In one scene, a red haired young man of Slavic descent orchestrates the catastrophic loss of pressure in the dome protecting the
first Martian town. Do you think that this character casting by Robinson is offensive to Slavic peoples? Does this deed, done by a colonist harboring personal enmity toward some of his colleagues, show that human beings are not yet emotionally mature enough
to attempt settlement of Mars?
