2015, the year Jessica Chastain plays another space hero and Matt Damon gets to escape a desolate planet as the good guy this time. The Martian captures a state of mind that I love so much to be in. That is to recognize how grand the greater experience is when you look across the vast horizon. I guess it’s just another way of saying, “Don’t miss of the forest for the trees.” With these closing thoughts in mind, I’m looking forward to dreaming big and working hard in the coming year.
Aside: If powerful, MAV-tipping sandstorms can occur unexpectedly on the surface Mars, isn’t it a huge design oversight that the Ares ascent vehicles are left unattended on the surface, just waiting to fall over?
