Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive--and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?… (mais)

    Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void por Mary Roach (sboyte)
    sboyte: One is fiction and one is nonfiction, but the subject matter is similar and I think both will appeal to anyone who enjoys science with a dash of humor.

    The Mysterious Island por Jules Verne (rakerman)
    rakerman: In The Mysterious Island, a small group lands on an island with no technology other than a watch and proceed to rebuild Victorian industrial civilization. The scientific details of creating each new device and system are carefully described. In The Martian, similar care is taken to describe the modified systems and devices needed to sustain the astronaut on Mars.… (mais)

    The Calculating Stars por Mary Robinette Kowal (g33kgrrl)
    g33kgrrl: Disaster hits and you have to engineer the impossible in a low-resource setting. In Kowal's book, it's getting a habitable off-world environment using 1950s tech before earth becomes unlivable. Highly recommended.

    Leviathan Wakes por James S. A. Corey (electronicmemory)
    electronicmemory: Andy Weir and James S. A. Corey met at a book signing and agreed that The Expanse series and The Martian set in the same time-line. So, if you're a fan of The Martian and want to find out what happened after Mars was colonized, read Leviathan Wakes. If you're a fan of The Expanse series, and want to read about the very first Martian colonist, read The Martian. For proof, check a 3 Oct 2015 tweet by @JamesSACorey for confirmation. One of The Expanse books also references a Martian ship named the 'Mark Watney'.… (mais)

It's pretty clear from the get-go that astronaut Mark Watney is actually going to survive being thought dead and being abandoned on Mars, despite his pronouncements about how truly fucked he is. Andy Weir didn't go to all the trouble to write this story about an astronaut left behind just to have him die at the end, much less somewhere in the middle. Thus, there's no suspense or tension.

The pleasure of this novel rather comes from two other sources. First, the intellectual interest of creating problems Watney might encounter in this extreme situation and then resolving them. Food going to run out way before any possible rescue? Figure out a way to grow lots of potatoes inside your habitable dome with the small handful you have. You need water for that. Set up a lab to strip rocket fuel of its hydrogen, apply a small flame at the end of a funnel directing the escaping hydrogen into the oxygen rich air to create water vapor which will be collected from the air by your life support system and stored as water. Imperfect hydrogen burn turns your dome into a potential hydrogen bomb? Evacuating all the oxygen will allow controlled hydrogen burn-off, but then no oxygen will kill the earth bacteria you've incredibly managed to foster in the Martian dirt to turn it into farmable soil. You have a space suit, but the bacteria don't. Ah, send them into near hibernation with freezing temperature! But that would kill the potatoes. Hmm. And so on. It can be a fun game.

Secondly, Watney's wisecracking character turns the novel into a sort of black comedy. It is not possible to imagine a more jovial, well-adjusted, full of zingers kinda guy in the bleak, lonely situation of being the only human on a planet hostile to your continued life, with any rescue years later a questionable prospect at best (allegedly). He does his best to keep us amused. ( )

Elisa has been after me to read this for ages, and I knew I was going to like it, and I finally did read it and it was just as great as I thought it would be.

Two points of compare and contrast with Star Wars Episode VII, which I also saw last weekend:

While I noticed and appreciated the diversity of the other Hermes crew and NASA staff, I did wonder a few times what it would have changed to write Mark as not a man or not white or not straight. He's a blank slate for every nerd's fantasies about being a plucky funny clever quietly-badass MacGuyver who can jerry-rig anything in an hour flat. And like all nerds who are at least one of not male/white/straight, I'm very practiced at ignoring that and relating anyway, even though I now know that consuming this kind of media too heavily will rot my self-esteem as surely as too much Halloween candy will rot my teeth.

I guess, to echo literally everyone else, in the year of our lord two thousand and fifteen why am I still amazed that a big budget sci fi movie has a black man and a white woman as action leads (not to mention a flying Bechdel pass)?

I also hope that The Martian hasn't ruined me forever, re: standing up in movie theaters and screaming you can't run a spaceship into a bunch of trees/rocks/enemy fire and then just up and fly that thing back into space if you don't want to end up dead of decompression/explosion/suffocation/starvation/all of the above at once in an entertaining series of events.

Ok, I lied, one other thought about The Martian: something tells me that that the boot output screen of Pathfinder as published in the book is highly accurate, and when I imagine the author tracking people down to ask about the fine details of Pathfinder's boot process, I become very, very happy.

This was a quick and easy read, mostly because my mind skipped merrily over most of the figures and calculations and went for the narrative and psychology. Several laugh out loud moments. This might be my go-to reread if I want something spacey and don't quite have the spoons for the whole Mars Trilogy (Kim Stanley Robinson). ( )

The Martian was an absolute delight to read. It is easily one of my favorite books of all time. Andy Weir does an incredible job of blending scientific jargon with masterful storytelling.

After a dangerous storm threatens astronauts on the surface of Mars, the decide to abandon their mission and return to Earth. The problem: one of them didn't make it back onto the ship before it left. Mark Watney has been stranded on a planet far from Earth with no way to get back. As he survives the best he can, Earth desperately tries to find a way to bring him back alive.

This book thrilled me until the very end. I couldn't put it down. ( )

The Martian is technically a “hard science fiction” book – a subgenre of science fiction so firmly rooted in science that the story wouldn’t work without it. And certainly, Weir’s first work is science-heavy; he even mentioned in an interview that the book was an exercise in whether he could make a fictional narrative out of the scientific premise of the novel. The answer, obviously, is “yes,” and The Martian is an intriguing exercise in the way that science itself can create plot.

Also, I have duct tape. Ordinary duct tape, like you buy at a hardware store. Turns out even NASA can't improve on duct tape.
I need to ask myself, "What would an Apollo astronaut do?" He'd drink three whiskey sours, drive his Corvette to the launchpad, then fly to the moon in a command module smaller than my Rover. Man, those guys were cool.
Yes, of course duct tape works in a near-vacuum. Duct tape works anywhere. Duct tape is magic and should be worshipped.
As with most of life's problems, this one can be solved by a box of pure radiation.
Hurray for standardized valve systems!
