The Martian

The Martian movie, starring Matt Damon reminds me of Cast Away, starring Tom Hanks. Instead of an island, Mars. Instead of no contact with humanity, there is communication with Earth - only from far far (140 million miles) away with a one-way communications delay of about 20 minutes (which varies with the changing distance between Earth and Mars). Both excel in survival - one on a planet with oxygen, the other without. Quite the star-studded cast in The Martian, not so much in Cast Away. Both are GREAT movies! A human mission to Mars by 2030? I'd like to go. "I want to die on Mars, just not on impact" (Elon Musk quote).

If Earth were the size of a basketball, the moon would be the size of a tennis ball and they'd be 25 feet apart.
