the martian

What would you do if you were stranded on a strange planet, with rescue years away, and only enough food to last a small part of that time? That’s the reality for Mark Watney in the new film ‘The Martian’ from 20th Century Fox, which will be released worldwide on Friday, October 2nd. But how does the Hollywood story compare with the reality of getting humans to Mars?

Well, Slooh is headed to the movies to find out, and we want to take you along with us. We’ll be breaking down the story of ‘The Martian’ to find out about the real science behind the film, and to discuss whether movies about space travel really inspire us to head out there ourselves.

But it’s not just our opinions that matter. We want to know what you think of the film, the science, and the possibility of heading to Mars. Send your thoughts to us on Twitter using the hashtag #SloohMartian and we’ll read and respond to them on air!
