The author, Brabury, takes real life situations that he was dealing with and made them into out of the ordinary times and settings, but with the same concept. Now he switched the answer to "how does man adapt to change?" to write his book. The answer to the question is of course, man adapts to change by making the unfamiliar familiar. Each character has a different train of thought to the changes of Mars and their findings, but they all have the same reaction of changing the unfamiliar to the familiar. The messages are also great and adaptable to the human eyes but instead of putting the messages into familiar settings, Bradbury puts these messages into unfamiliar settings, which is like the exact opposite of how humans adapt to change.

When Captain Williams and his crew arrived at Mars on the second expedition, he expected all the Martians to gawk at their presents as…
