Space Investor Steve Jurvetson and “The Martian” Author Andy Weir Mind-Meld Over Mars

Raw Science interviews New York Times best-selling author Andy Weir (“The Martian”) and space investor Steve Jurvetson inside Steve’s office at Draper Fisher Jurvetson, which is an all out space museum.  “The Martian” will soon be a feature film by Ridley Scott starring Matt Damon. Can you spot the “Bill and Ted” moment? (Hint: It involves astronaut John Young). Andy describes the process of writing the book and how he went from engineer to best-selling author in a nanosecond. Jurvetson details real life challenges and possible solutions in the real-life quest to colonize Mars.

The interview sparked a lively discussion on Reddit about Martian life forms, remote synthetic biology, and possible panspermia.

The interview was also written up by Donald Goldsmith for Space.com:

The trailer for The Martian is now on YouTube via 20th Century Fox:

  • Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
