Dear citizen of Earth
The Earth population has reached the critical threshold for which we cannot maintain our resources. You have been randomly select for the Save the Earth initiative. You will be relocated to our lunar living module. The lunar module is the first staging station for your Marian relocation transition.

See figure 1 for details. Due to the extreme conditions of inter-space travel, anyone over the age of 20 will not be considered for relocation. This includes your friends and family. You alone must report in 3 days to your local Save the Earth staging center for relocation. This voyage is extremely dangerous. Inter-space living is extremely physically demanding. There is a 30% possibility that you will not be able to withstand the physical exertion. Figure 1 Would you GO? BellRinger! EQ:
