    Today's episode promises to be CRAPPIER than ever - because we're talking about The Martian. That's no judgement on the movie, it's just that the film is ACTUALLY full of poop and poop science. But the question the poop science actually a load of crap? Hold your nose and dive in to discover if it is actually possible for Watney to survive on Mars like the movie portrays.

    We pay them to make fertilizer that farmers pay for, who we pay for their crops

    You didn't mention the red planet's lack of magnetic field. It's what shields us in Earth from solar flares. He never would've survived that much exposure from the unfiltered sun.

      Well, here’s the thing. I understand what you are saying, and I believe that MatPat would too, but the entire reason of this video was to see if the crap potatoes are something an average adult human male could live off of. I would agree more if this video was about if Matt Damen could survive on Mars in general, but that’s not necessarily what the point of this video is.

    fun fact: Andy Weir (the author of the book) actually mentioned the inaccuracy of the storm. The original draft had Watney left stranded as the result of an engine test, but he changed it because he wanted nature to get the first shot in.

    Baha your facts are about as stretched as the movie but don't concern yourself it's not your fault having us dumbed down is "their" specialty "they" would have us believe almost anything such as a vehicle that can survive floating around in the heat and cold extremes of an even more extreme vacuum you know the same vacuum that rockets somehow shoot through? I think what is more important may be is the former sentence actually propper? Be honest I can take it!

    He would need fat in his diet though. Our bodies need fat to absorb many vitamins. He would have become malnourished regardless of how many supplements he took... unless those supplements had fat.

    I think one of the issues you point out you miss a key point. sure, mars is further away and gets less sunlight. However it has a much thinner atmosphere so not nearly as much of the radiation is reflected away.

    You are so wrong to say the average person does not get any money because of the use of biosolids, you see because what it does do is saves you money on your sewer bill.

    Movie shows big rock cliffs formed by water erosion, also shows him blast off with a tarp covering nose cone....

    Mars doesn't have soil, well not topsoil like we are accustomed.

    You need to read a book instead of the movie. He covered all this, earth dirt for bacteria, vitamins for nutrition. He just needed calories.

  • rampage the sneaky lil bitch

    wait you did not know we used human poop to fertilise? what did you think we did with all the poop we flush down? you know we clean the water you flush down with the poop and then we sell that water back to the society. yeah you are drinking and showering in poop water

    Wouldn't the thinner atmosphere on Mars give the rocket like nothing to push off of. Or at the very least the engine wouldn't function properly as it was calibrated work under very different atmospheric conditions. Lack of atmosphere would cause a plethora of issues......please wake up and see that nasa is conditioning and brainwashing people to believe in things that are impossible if you stop basing reality on movies. Read a book and get back to real science rather than the religion of scientism.
