Talk Summary

I shall provide a brief introduction to Mars, focussing on both its similarities to - and the very important differences from! - our own planet Earth. This will form the basis for a discussion about the way that Mars is portrayed in the recent film The Martian, allowing you to appreciate the scientific content of the film and some of the hazards that would be faced by astronauts on Mars.
