Analyzing Science Fiction Stories on Deception and Technology
"Mars is Heaven" was published in 1948, just after World War II and at the beginning of
the Cold War between the USA and USSR. On the surface, it depicts Martians seemingly
peacefully greeting American astronauts, only to later reveal it as a ruse to lure the astronauts
into a false sense of security before attacking them. This mirrors the tension and distrust between
competing global superpowers at the time. The story serves as a warning about judging situations
at face value or letting your guard down with rival nations.
Similarly, "Adam and No Eve" was published in 1941, the same year as the secret
Manhattan Project developing the atomic bomb. The story features a scientist uncontrollably
accelerating time to destroy the world, not unlike the nuclear threat being developed in real life.
Both stories act as chilling predictions about technology and warfare, whether it was the author's
intention as a political message or just coincidence. Regardless, the stories serve as warnings
about the dangers of unchecked technological and military escalations.
Using the rhetorical triangle model, for "Mars is Heaven":


Author: Ray Bradbury



Purpose: Warn about political deception and letting one's guard down
