Pull out all your "why doesn't someones" and come throw them into the arena of ideas. Rated PG-13, so hold those other ones for a different forum.

Some might claim, for example, that a good colonization-of-Mars novel has yet to be written. This is a brainstorming session to smoke out ideas, not to judge them. Captain Bringdown has not been invited.
Note also: These ideas will become public. If you have an idea you intend to write about or otherwise claim ownership of, it's best not to present it here.
