The Martian | PG-13


“Sciencing the S*it Out of The Martian” with Lee Sawyer

How much science did The Martian get right? Could a spaceship really “slingshot” around Earth to make it back to Mars in record time? What does years in space really do to an astronaut’s body? Could Matt Damon actually fly into space in a rocket with the nose torn off? Lee Sawyer, Ph.D., director of chemistry and physics at Louisiana Tech University, will answer these and other questions we’ll likely never get to test for ourselves. Sawyer is a member of a team of scientists from Louisiana Tech who work on CERN’s Large Hadron Collider and is currently conducting research on the effects of long-duration space flight on human bodies.
