    ANDY WEIR built a career as a software engineer until the success of his first published novel, THE MARTIAN, allowed him to live out his dream of writing fulltime.

    “The Martian” isn’t intended to be an entirely factual account of experiences on Mars. It’s a film that was made for audiences to enjoy and it holds true to its purpose. It’s fun to analyze and question but remember to enjoy the film first to get the full cinematic experience. Please be aware that this discussion guide may contain spoilers! A castaway story for the new millennium, The Martian presents a fresh take on the classic man-vs-nature battle for survival by setting it on the surface of Mars—a planet completely hostile to sustaining human life. Yet debut novelist and self-proclaimed space nerd Andy Weir manages to make every moment of astronaut Mark Watney.

      His book was non-fiction but it launched Mars in the popular Western imagination. Subsequent explorers who reached the Red Planet found flourishing societies of all sorts of Martians—some.   KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain star in the new sci-fi adventure “The Martian,” where Damon is abandoned on Mars. As the film chronicles Damon’s attempt to survive.
