People are different. Whether we choose to be or not, people are not like other people or other living things, and we are different from each other on an individual level. But somehow, we find ways to cohabit this blue planet we call “home.”
But what would happen if an entire population of humans went out on an expedition in space and completely forgot about the people there? Surely in the immediacy, there would still be contact, but what about when many generations pass, to a point where those human explorers live somewhere else? Would we still be in communication? Would we even speak the same language?
But more importantly: what would happen when they return to our planet?
