Here's something very, very awesome. In anticipation of the upcoming film "The Martian," 20th Century Fox has released a "Mission Guide" modeled after promotional and informational guides featuring an in-depth look at the crew of the Ares 3 mission, the equipment used and the structure of the mission control.
It gives a lot of cool information presented in a very neat way for newcomers but for fans of the book, it gives an amazing look at all the familiar pieces from the novel, including the Rover and Hab, and a letter from Teddy Sanders. Check out some images below and head over Here for the full .pdf.
Based on the 2011 novel by Andy Weir, director Ridley Scott’s sci-fi adventure stars Damon as an astronaut who’s presumed dead during a mission to Mars and left behind by his crew. Struggling to survive with only meager supplies, Watney manages to get a signal to Earth, leading NASA to search for a way to bring “the Martian” home, even as his own crew hatches a daring — and seemingly impossible — rescue plan.
Opening Oct. 2, “The Martian” also stars Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Sebastian Stan, Jeff Daniels, Sean Bean, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Donald Glover.
