A Teddy Bear on Mars

There it is! There it is!

For March for Science Day, little bears watched The Martian, their favourite science film 🙂 After all, there is a little teddy bear in the film and in the face of overwhelming odds, Mark Watney had to science the s**t out of surviving on Mars!

This is Neil deGrasse Tyson’s favourite line in the film. And ours 🙂

Retired astronaut Chris Hadfield gave the book a glowing review: “It has the very rare combination of a good, original story, interestingly real characters and fascinating technical accuracy…reads like MacGyver meets Mysterious Island.”

NASA was involved in the film. While NASA can’t support a private enterprise, their experts were consulted, and the film production crew worked very closely with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab officials. NASA also gave permission for the film to use the copyrighted NASA logo on its costumes. European Space Agency officials were also on the film set.
