Mars – come for the potatoes, stay for the disco.

Astronaut Matt Damon proves he has the “right stuff” to survive an extended stay on the Red Planet in Ridley Scott’s acclaimed 2015 blockbuster The Martian.  Justin, Jakob, and Stuart continue their look at outer space exploration with an ultra-realistic trip to the nearest colonizable planet. How many scientists does it take to cypher out a solution to getting a marooned botanist back home safe?  And will audiences find the results easier to follow than Interstellar and Arrival?  Link up with the latest Now Playing transmission and find out.
