    Yes it was, and it was originally self-pubbed.

    Every time I watch it, I keep rooting for Mars to win.

    Major problem I have, is why not send out the probe they got resupplied with (and could remotely operate the) to grab him?

    It couldn't have been completely out of fuel.

    Never thought about that. It might not have had enough fuel to get him and return, though. A resupply module like that usually only has minor thrustors. Any main engine it would have had should been out of fuel by rendezvous time.

    LMAO! I don't go to the theaters, and I refuse to buy a DVD at full price. I snagged it for under 10 bucks at work.

    Oh, and seriously, the Commander was the ONLY member allowed to bring ANY type of Digital music along?

    How much could 1000 songs per crew member have weighed, especially when everyone else had laptops full of useless shit.

    Yeah, I over analyze stupid plot McGuffins all the time, I need help.

    I think in the book he mentions that hers was the only kind of music he could tolerate or something.
