Please Check In Here!

If you think you're going to read and participate in the discussion of "The Martian," by Andy Weird, please make a brief post here letting us know! Just "check in" by saying "I'm in" or whatever you want to say to give your fellow members a heads up that they can expect to hear more from you soon.

This discussion is open to those of you that just plan to watch the movie "The Martian" that is hitting theaters October 2, 2015. Our goal is to have a great discussion so please don't shy away from this forum if you're not interested in the book. From the reviews the movie is going to be awesome.

Also, please consider this forum the perfect place to discuss the wider topics of unmanned and manned space exploration, the space program in general or anything else related to astronomy or cosmology.

I saw the movie this morning. It is an extraordinary story of psychological resilience and creative innovation. The theme of how to survive alone in such an unforgiving environment as Mars is emotionally powerful.
