These photos of Mars will help you better understand all the problems Matt Damon faced in The Martian. The footage was taken by NASA astronauts and kindly made available to the public. It was here that all the tragic events of the popular film unfolded …
If you want to get a better understanding of the environment Matt Damon’s character found himself in in the Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Martian’, then you can simply look at these breathtaking photos of Mars. The images were taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter using the spacecraft’s special telescopic camera. These photographs depict many of the same places mentioned in the 2011 novel and 2015 movie.
For example, some episodes of ‘The Martian’ take place in the Acidalia Planitia and Schiaparelli crater. While the fictional version of the movie shows the southern Acidalia Planitia as completely flat and navigable, these photos of Mars prove otherwise. In fact, the landscapes of these territories are quite complex, dotted with craters and covered with boulders, rocky slopes and ancient volcanoes. Meanwhile, some craters have flat areas that could be used as a landing site for rovers. Life on Mars may appear within a few decades thanks to the Space X project.
Ultimately, these photos of Mars help us not only better understand the Hollywood blockbuster, but also gain a fuller understanding of the features of the planet we may one day inhabit. I also advise you to study the collections of giant craters on the body of the Earth, where very interesting specimens are collected.
