Legend Of The Mythological Genes Chapter 59
Mars was the fourth planet of the solar system, if one started the count from Mercury. Since ancient times, it was the origin of many myths and legends. Those in ancient China called it the Glimmer Planet, while the Romans named it as Mars, the god of war…
As the spaceship approached Mars, that reddish planet that was 1/7th the size of Earth appeared nearer and nearer in Feng Lin's vision. Dots of green could be seen on the surface of the planet.
This was a barren country where water resources were extremely scarce. Water only existed in the form of ice which was buried deep underneath the ground. In the beginning, this planet hadn't been suitable for life at all.
However, as humans began to walk out of Earth and started to migrate to all over the solar system, the first planet they wanted to colonize was Mars. They were finally able to transform it into a planet suitable for life by collecting water from minor planets in the solar system, Titan 6, as well as Pluto.
The spaceship broke through the atmospheric layers of mars's violent gales and officially entered Mars. The dust storms gusted fiercely, smashing against the windows of the spaceship. Here, the intensity of high altitude airflow was many times stronger when compared to Earth.
Feng Lin felt a sinking sensation as the spaceship began its descent.
Far away, Feng Lin saw a towering mountain that was severed at its waist, forming a flat giant platform of stone with numerous buildings constructed on it.
The Shitai City of Mars!
The spaceship soon landed and Feng Lin exited it.
An earthen-yellow sandstorm gusted over, filling his mouth with sand and jamming the air passageways in his nose.
Feng Lin spat out the sand in his mouth as he surveyed his surroundings.
Earth's buildings were mostly skyscrapers and thus the feel of science and technology was different. In this martian city, above the ground's surface, he saw numerous windmills about hundreds of meters tall. This city was like a forest of windmills.
Not many people were out in the open. Those who passed by him on the streets all wore headscarves and veils, hiding their appearances, giving off a mysterious feeling.
However, this wasn't for the sake of looking mysterious. The atmosphere on Mars was simply too dry, and the gales of sand and dust made it so that the attire of the people living here were like this. They needed to shield their noses and mouths.
Feng Lin unfortunately wasn't dressed in the suitable clothings, and just by walking for a while on the street, he could already feel the waves of sand and dust gushing over. Not only were his mouth and nose blocked, but his clothes were also layered with dust, and he appeared to resemble a man of mud.
"Cough, cough, cough…"
Feng Lin coughed repeatedly. He shook his body, and the dust and sand covering his body all fell off everywhere.
Feng Lin had a bitter look on his face. This place was simply too dirty. The PM2.5 index level should have broken past 1,000, right!?
Upon seeing the miserable appearance of this visitor, those Martians all revealed looks of laughter on their faces.
Feng Lin knew he couldn't wander around here for long. He hurried and entered the entrance that led to the underground portion of the Shitai City.
Yes, there was an underground portion in the city!
The Earth was humanity's mother planet. It had given birth to a multitude of human's lives, and the good living conditions naturally didn't need to be mentioned. Hence, the buildings on Earth were all above ground, towering up to the skies.
However, things were different here on Mars. The environment here was very bad, filled with violent gusts of wind and sand. It wasn't suitable for humans to live on the surface.
Hence, the buildings here didn't develop upward and were constructed under the ground instead.
The main body of the Shitai City was its underground portion. This place was the true residence for humans, and there were many electrical installations and types of equipment that were powered by wind energy. The reason why there were so many windmills built was because the humans here wanted to harness the power of the violent gales to obtain an unceasing source of energy for their underground city.
Feng Lin found an entrance that led downward. He took the elevator and descended down further into the earth.
Without realizing it, he was already 200 levels below the surface and was nearing the planet's crust.
Upon stepping out from the elevator, a vast spacious space appeared in his vision. The ground had been hollowed out and built into an impressive and majestic undercity.
Although this was an enclosed space, it didn't feel stuffy at all. There was evidently air-circulation devices installed around here.
The artificial sun at the ceiling gave out light. The light was bright but not blinding, capable of illuminating the underground city clearly.
Everything appeared normal, but it fully expressed the technology of the Interstellar Era.
At this moment, a message appeared on Feng Lin's id microchip. "Feng Lin, a citizen of Huaxia City of Earth. Welcome to the Shitian City of Mars..."
The city management A.I. discerned Feng Lin's identity and sent out a welcome message while also introducing various areas of the undercity to him.
As long as Feng Lin tapped on any points of information, he would be able to acquire all the informations regarding the city easily. He wouldn't feel unfamiliar at all.
He opened up the map and input the search term 'Giant Pharmaceutical Company' and soon managed to locate the coordinates.
Although he had just arrived here, he didn't have time to tour the Shitai City. He decided it would be better to head to his company and report his presence first. He would only take a look around this martian city when he had more free time in the future.
The location of the Giant Pharmaceutical Company was extremely remote and far away. He had to board a special tunnel train to take him there. After twenty minutes, Feng Lin got down from the train and saw a unique building resembling a beehive before him. This building was constructed on the ground, and the words 'Giant Pharmaceutical Company' could be seen on it.
At the hive-like entrance of the Giant Pharmaceutical Company, numerous maglev vehicles could be seen entering and exiting from it, resembling worker bees.
Feng Lin then walked toward the main door.
A group of sentient security robots instantly discovered him. They walked over as their electronic eyes flickered, attempting to scan Feng Lin, wanting to see through him.
The ray guns in their hands were not toys. If Feng Lin made any suspicious moves, he would instantly be riddled with holes.
"The Giant Pharmaceutical Company is private property. Stranger, state your purpose here!" the robot standing in the lead spoke with a mechanical voice.
"I'm an intern that has been successfully recruited. I'm here to report my arrival." Feng Lin spoke and used his identity microchip to display his proof of identity.
The leader of the security robots finished scanning the chip, and its electronic eyes turned from red to green. It then gestured for the other robots to step aside, opening up a path for Feng Lin. "Welcome, new member of the corporation, Feng Lin!"
Feng Lin nodded and entered inside.
Just as he entered deeper, he immediately saw a blonde hair lady smiling at him as she walked over in a seductive manner. "Feng Lin, we meet again!"
"It's you!" Feng Lin started after he took a good look at the person who walked over. It was actually none other than that sexy OL who had led him to the interviewers in the virtual universe previously.
Who would have thought that she didn't adjust any of her features at all. In reality, she was also an extremely alluring beauty.
"I'm the human resource manager for the Giant Pharmaceutical Company, Isabella. This is the second time we are meeting. It's a pity that it's already too late today. However, the company has already arranged a room for you. You can stay there temporarily for now. Tomorrow, I will bring you to the various departments in the company and let you familiarize yourself with the working environment before I send you to your department." The blonde hair Isabella flashed him a charming smile.
"Sure." After the six-hour-journey, Feng Lin also felt a little fatigued. He followed her into the building and entered a room that seemed to be constructed fully from metal, giving off a sense of extremely high tech.
"I believe you won't be disappointed after coming all the way to our Giant Pharmaceutical Company." After arranging Feng Lin's resting place, Isabella smiled with a mesmerizing glow in her eyes. After that, she turned and walked away, swaying her hips to the left and right.
Unexpectedly, Feng Lin was just standing there with a calm look on his face. He declined to comment and entered his room.
Being in the genetic potions' business was simply a way to churn out insanely large amounts of profits!
One couldn't help but say that this Giant Pharmaceutical Company was filthy rich. This room was as luxurious as a palace, and there were various kinds of high-grade nutrient fluids, which allowed him to replenish his nutrients and energy. Also, this large room didn't have any telephone or 'push-for-assistance' button. Everything ran by remote control.
Feng Lin went and looked at the control center of this room. He suddenly saw the words, "Geneticist Tutorial". He clicked it and a holographic projection appeared in his room, and many options could be seen shimmering in the air.
The top most one was actually, "Types of geneticists!"
