Mars

SBS, 7.30pm

The Gympie Times - - LIFE -

Pro­duced by National Ge­o­graphic, di­rected by Ron Howard (Apollo 13) and pro­duced by Brian Grazer (A Beau­ti­ful Mind), Mars is a feat of imag­i­na­tion and a cel­e­bra­tion of sci­ence. It fea­tures real-life in­ter­view footage, along with a fic­tional story set in 2033. We fol­low a crew of six as­tro­nauts launch­ing from Florida on a jour­ney to be the first peo­ple to set foot on Mars, but trou­ble arises when their ves­sel’s land­ing sys­tems mal­func­tion. Sci­en­tists and engi­neers such as Elon Musk and Neil deGrasse Tyson di­vulge on the dif­fi­cul­ties that the crew might face. It’s a slightly clunky but fas­ci­nat­ing ad­ven­ture into the realm of the un­known.
