The one thing wrong with “The Martian” film

Retired astronomer and council member of the Wellington Astronomical Society Frank Andrews reviews the film “The Martian” and only finds one thing wrong: “It was by far the best look ahead at how mars will be explored. In broad terms it was very good. The only criticism I have is the dust storm kicked up by an almighty wind. On Mars the atmosphere is less than one per cent the density of Earth’s atmosphere so that would never happen but overall is an excellent movie!” This interview was recorded at the Space Place at Carter Observatory in Wellington where Frank Andrews give regular talks about astronomy.
