When I was ten, I went on a boy scout camping trip, and got lost. For two hours, I was stuck in the forest with only a water bottle, three granola bars, and a whistle. But this is nothing compared to what Mark Watney faces during his fight for survival on Mars. Mark Watney (engineer and botanist of Ares 3) with his crew of five other people (Beck, Martinez, Vogel, Lewis, and Johanssen), is on Mars, left behind by his crew on accident after a strong wind storm.
