500 Earth years from on…

Meanwhile, on Mars:

Two sentient beings “talking” to one another using a communication method we would hesitate to call a language:

“Do you know the reason for the structures over there?  My reference system has no viable explanation for their former purpose?”

“Before we came into existence, previous generations of our kind depended on oxygen and needed protection from radiation to live full and healthy lives, thus requiring heavy shielding and significant resources for life support systems.”

“That explains why they were phased out and we were introduced, then?”

“Of course!”
