Our Greatest Adventure

The Hermes Spacecraft from the film "The Martian".

Today on Far Future Horizons we present "Our Greatest Adventure" hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson.

This is  an excellent viral movie campaign for the motion picture "The Martian" starring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie, Donald Glover, Mackenzie Davis, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

"The Martian" is based on Andy Weir's 2011 novel of the same name, which was adapted into a screenplay by Drew Goddard. Damon stars as an astronaut who is presumed dead and left behind on the planet Mars, and he fights to survive the situation.

Our adventure is just beginning. Neil deGrasse Tyson examines the upcoming Ares 3 mission and their Journey To Mars in this special episode of Star Talk.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.

The film is scheduled to premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 2015. 

20th Century Fox will release the film in theaters in the United Kingdom on September 30, 2015. 

The film will also be released in theaters in the United States on October 2, 2015. The film will be in 2D and 3D.
