Prediction: we will discover a past civilization (a billion years or so ago) on Mars. We will then learn how the planet became unstable for Martian life and how they sent a small group of their people to their neighboring blue dot. Said group will have slowly populated the blue dot over time, and gave homage to their creators in the heavens.
