21 November 2059 was a fixed point in time: Bowie Base One, the first human colony on Mars, was destroyed and its crew was killed. The death of the captain, Adelaide Brooke, would inspire her granddaughter, Susie Fontana Brooke, to venture out into space, ensuring humanity's place among the stars. When the Tenth Doctor visited, the Flood infected the base. When Adelaide initiated Action 5, as per history, the base was, sixteen weeks into its mission, destroyed.
