Hundreds of years ago, people used to believe that the earth was flat, but with the research and technology, we were able to find out that it is a perfect sphere. Aliens run along those same lines.

Now, he has to fight for survival and face the constant possibility of natural disasters against Mars: a barren wasteland. There are few structures that Watney is able to go in, one of them is called the Hab. The Hab is the closest thing he can call as his home and without it he has no choice but to face the fact that he is completely detached from humanity. Eventually, he loses it after getting “out of sight of the Hab” (Weir 7.100). In Rebecca Solnit’s essay, “Walking and the Suburbanized Psyche” she insists that interacting with nature is vital to the health of our bodies, minds, and imaginations.
Although Mark desperately tries to maintain his positive attitude, it is very difficult for him to do so when he is completely isolated with no communication, for most of the novel. This is proven in the novel because the hab gives Mark the only sense of civilization, non-isolation, and humanity. However when Mark steps outside into the unknown territories of Mars, he is immediately reminded of how broadly isolated he is. This is why the drawing has
While on Mars for the long period of time, he used his time wisely to work on solutions to extend his life, his no quit attitude and state of mind was main reason he was able to survive that long on Mars. Despite being left on Mars by his crew mates, he didn’t blame them for the misunderstanding adding the fact that they thought he was dead because his communication antenna was ruptured and penetrated his space suit and his abdomen which knocked him unconscious. This tells you the type of person Mark Watney is, even though the crew felt guilty for leaving him stranded on Mars, he refused to hold a grudge. He believes in the people around him and knew there was a plan in play for him to get

But now, with the advancements of science and technology, people still choose to believe and create groups or “societies” claiming the Earth is flat.

This was the first wave of resistance the Military had sent, so far. The residents of Woking feel safe in the presence of the Military, but the same does not go for Indiana, and his wife, Jones. “We can’t possibly stay here! Danger lurks right around the corner,” said Indiana “We plan on departing for Leatherhead immediately, the presence of my cousins and relatives will put me at ease from all this Martian nonsense, especially since I no longer feel safe in my home,” said Jones. “Even though we have the presence of the military, we have no idea what the Martians are capable of doing.
The book, while not written during the United State’s race with Russia to go into space, was written during a time when such interest was still forming due to recent advances in space travel capabilities. Such a fascination can be found in Clarisse during her very first conversation with Montag, when she mentions a “man on the moon” (Bradbury 7). The same curiosity can even be spotted in Montag himself, if the comment Clarisse makes about how he looked at the moon whenever she mentioned it (Bradbury 21) is any indication. The interest shown by these characters is not surprising, though, when one knows that Bradbury himself had a deep, invested fascination with space.
I also started to think about the Drake equation, which I learned about in high school. The Drake equation looks at different things like the formation of stars and the probability of other life-sustaining planets, which in turn gives us a number of civilizations in the Milky Way Galaxy that we can detect electromagnetic emissions from (The Drake Equation). While I thought quite a bit about extraterrestrial life, I also thought about the fact we are stuck on Earth. The first thing that immediately comes to mind with that is how we are going to produce enough food. In the paper we discussed during class on Thursday, the data showed that we are using a significant amount of our natural resources in the production of beef cattle, and my thoughts on this are that we should transition to meats that don’t use as many resources.
