What business you would build on Mars?

A business that sells a mini pocket Earth, and this is a miniature Earth that you can keep in your pocket to remind you of the place that you came from. Or if you're a new alien on Mars, to help you visualize the Earth you may one day visit and it'd be a little miniature version of Earth, maybe about the kind of palm of your hand that you could put in your pocket and it would have some sort of mechanic that when you hold it in your palm, it would spin in, the way that Earth does so that. I think we would market it as, "Keep a little piece of Earth in your pocket. You can't see earth anymore, so now you can."
