Over the course of the past year, public and private officials have altered their focus from Mars to a much closer target – Earth's Moon. Now, Andy Weir whose breakout success was based on the adventures of a castaway on the Red Planet has followed suit with his latest offering – Artemis.
On Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2015, NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC), located near Houston, Texas, hosted cast members from the soon-to-be-released 20th Century Fox motion picture, “The Martian.” The event was held in order to discuss the difference between science-fiction and science fact.
It is the movie many space tech enthusiasts have been waiting for: a big-screen adaptation of Andy Weir’s book “The Martian”. Directed by Ridley Scott, the movie, like the book, promises to be a technically-accurate, action-packed story of human ingenuity and endurance on Mars.
