SUN­DAY, NOVEMBER 11 MARS S2: NAT GEO AT 8PM

The Sunday Independent - - SUNDAY MAGAZINE -

“We Are Not Alone”: picks up five years af­ter the con­clu­sion of Sea­son 1, fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful maiden mis­sion to the Red Planet when the orig­i­nal In­ter­na­tional Mars Sci­ence Foun­da­tion (IMSF) crew strug­gled to safely land on and cre­ate an ini­tial set­tle­ment. Now sci­en­tists at the IMSF’s fully de­vel­oped Olym­pus Town set­tle­ment pre­pare for the ar­rival of a group of highly skilled as­tro­nauts work­ing for Lukrum In­dus­tries, a for-profit cor­po­ra­tion spe­cial­is­ing in nat­u­ral-re­source ex­trac­tion. Ten­sions arise when the min­ers from this new colony, led by Com­man­der Kurt Hur­relle (Jeff Heph­ner), re­quest IMSF’s aid with­out prior warn­ing, forc­ing Olym­pus Town Mis­sion Com­man­der Hana Se­ung (Ji­HAE) to de­ter­mine how to en­sure a peace­ful co­ex­is­tence. In present day on Earth aboard the world’s north­ern­most oil plat­form in the Arc­tic, ex­treme con­di­tions make for a Mars-like work en­vi­ron­ment. A worker talks about the strug­gles of be­ing away from his fam­ily for three weeks at a time.
