A fragment of the script for the movie "The Martian" by Ridley Scott visited space. According to Comingsoon, citing project producer Aditya Sud, the title page with the director's own drawings was placed in a special capsule aboard the Orion spacecraft, which made a successful test flight on December 5, 2014.
"Our movie is about people who are obsessed with science and space exploration, so this was a very important experiment for us," said the producer. Recall that it is the ships of this type that will be used by NASA for manned flights to Mars. The first is scheduled for 2020.
The "Martian" script is based on the eponymous work of the writer Andy Weir, published in 2012 in electronic format. Its plot revolves around astronaut Mark Watney, left all alone on Mars. The crew of his ship was urgently evacuated from the planet during a severe sandstorm, believing that Mark was dead. The hero has no means of communication, and his life support systems will fail before help can come.
