  • A novel by Andy Weir
  • Rising Action
  • A wind storm hit Mars with winds at 175mph. Mark Watney was hit down by a chunk of debris making his crewmates on Ares 3 think he was dead. They couldn't save him in time, so they had to leave before everyone died. 
  • Climax
  • Mark Watney wakes up alive on Mars alone after Ares 3 left. He knows he only has 30 days of food and water in the HAB. He also knows he has no communications with NASA. He starts to work on growing potatoes with botanist skills, and he condenses a room to make water until Ares 4 arrives in 4 years, but he'll be 100 sols dead when they arrive.

  • NASA found pop-tents from a rover up and Mark's body nowhere to be found according to the Mars satellite.  They found away to communicate to each other using a computer system on Mars and connecting it to a Mars satellite to transfer the messages. Everyone in the U.S. was informed, and it shocked them to see Mark alive on Mars.
  • NASA decided to do a drive-by by barely going into Mar's orbit. Mark will use an detached engine from a space ship with not much fuel to get to the drive-by area.Since there isn't much fuel Mark will take off many parts of the capsule and wrap it with a tarp. Everyone is anxious, because they don't know if he'll make it.
