The Bitterings landed on Mars, in a rocket. While the rest of his family is excited for the opportunity, Harry is quite nervous and wants to go back to Earth.
Harry Bittering began to notice changes in his family members. Some of the changes he noticed were: their eyes were turning gold, they were more slender, and they were taller.
Harry notices slight and drastic changes in the crops and animals his family have brought on Mar. The Peach Blossom felt odd, the Roses turned green, and the cow grew a third horn.
The Bittering family's English is starting to morph into the Martian language. One specific use includes when Dan said Utha, meaning "Father"..
After the other Bitterings easily convinced Harry to take a break from building his rocket, the Bitterings went to the Martian hills. Their transformation into Martians was almost completed.
The Bitterings have made their full transformation into Martians at this point, and they have no memory of their past human lives. The rest of the population on planet Earth will go through the same process.
