A Trip to Mars

I’ve just finished reading “The Martian” by Andy Weir and its a great read which I recommend to anyone who likes science fiction.

The book is a narrative of Mark Watney, one of the crew members of Ares III; Earth’s third manned mission to Mars. Disaster strikes and the rest of the crew members are forced to evacuate, leaving Watney alone on the red planet, with the whole world thinking he’s dead.

This is an amazing tale of survival and ingenuity, and Weir did an excellent amount of research making everything in the book as realistic as possible.
