Confession time: I’m a space geek. If I was younger and the opportunity was offered, I expect I’d volunteer to go to Mars.
Which is why I’m looking forward to seeing the new movie, “The Martian” featuring Matt Damon, based on the self-published book by Andy Weir. (In 2014, the book finally did find a traditional publisher). Not only does the movie look good, but the fact that Andy Weir believed in his writing enough to self-publish it, and then, was “discovered” is pretty cool. (And every self-published author’s dream).
But what I’m really excited about is there’s water on Mars. Hooray! One thing necessary for life (as we know it) checked off the list.
