Whoever gave them the maneuver only passed along information. Crew made the decision on their own.

You want to send him into space under a tarp?

<Prev / Quote 16 of 104 / Next>

By the time the ship is going fast enough for air resistance to matter, it'll be high enough that there will be practically no air.

#qt3001356-5 / read by Akanksha-14

<Prev / Quote 17 of 104 / Next>

The hull is mostly there to keep air in. Mars' atmosphere is so thin, you do not need a lot of streamlining.

#qt3001356-4 / read by Akanksha-14

<Prev / Quote 18 of 104 / Next>

You want to send a man into space without the front of his ship?

#qt3001356-3 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 19 of 104 / Next>

Sure. The nose alone is four hundred kilograms.

#qt3001356-2 / read by Akanksha-14

<Prev / Quote 20 of 104 / Next>

You want to take the front of the ship off?

#qt3001356-1 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 21 of 104 / Next>

Which means we need to make the MAV lighter. A lot lighter. Five thousand kilograms lighter.

#qt3001355-5 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 22 of 104 / Next>

The MAV is only designed to enter low Mars orbit. So in order for Mark to escape Mars' gravity entirely to intercept with Hermes...

#qt3001355-4 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 23 of 104 / Next>

The Hermes, can't enter Mars orbit, otherwise they will never have enough fuel to make it home.

#qt3001355-3 / read by VIVEK-96

<Prev / Quote 24 of 104 / Next>

Yeah. The problem is the intercept velocity.

Okay, um, I'm going to start by stating for the record, you are not going to like this.

We still have a chance to bring five astronauts home safe and sound. I'm not risking their lives.

#qt3001336-2 / read by VIVEK-96

<Prev / Quote 27 of 104 / Next>

So what, we either have a high chance of killing one person, or a low chance of killing six people. How do we make that decision?

All natural, organic, martian-grown potatoes. You don't hear that every day, do you?

#qt2999711-4 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 29 of 104 / Next>

I dug them up being careful to leave their plants alive. The smaller ones I'll reseed, the larger ones are my food supply.

#qt2999711-3 / read by VIVEK-96

<Prev / Quote 30 of 104 / Next>

They grew even better than I expected. I now have 400 healthy potato plants.

#qt2999711-2 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 31 of 104 / Next>

It's been 48 sols since I planted the potatoes. So now it's time to reap and re-sow.

My God, Commander, could you have not brought something from this century? No, I won't 'turn the beat around,' I refuse to.

#qt2902220 / read by VIVEK-96

<Prev / Quote 37 of 104 / Next>

The truth is that Mark's right. The longer we wait, the worse it's going to get. We need to tell the crew.

<Prev / Quote 41 of 104 / Next>

I'm sorry, Martinez, but if you didn't want me to go through your stuff, you shouldn't have left me for dead on a desolate planet.

Should we alert the media?

Oh, wow. Did everybody hear that? Mark just discovered dirt.

All right team, stay in sight of each other. Let's make NASA proud today.

I do like the way it sounds. I mean, I like it a lot. I'm not gonna tell them that.

#qt2753357-8 / read by Shriram-60

<Prev / Quote 47 of 104 / Next>

So they're only doing that in the hopes that I won't raise any objections to this lunacy ..

#qt2753357-7 / read by VIVEK-96

<Prev / Quote 48 of 104 / Next>

And by the way, physicists, when describing things like acceleration do not use the word 'fast'.

#qt2753357-6 / read by VIVEK-96

<Prev / Quote 49 of 104 / Next>

Actually it's worse than that, because I won't even be able to control the thing.

#qt2753357-5 / read by VIVEK-96

<Prev / Quote 50 of 104 / Next>

Yeah, I get to go faster than any man in the history of space travel, because you're launching me in a convertible.

<Prev / Quote 51 of 104 / Next>

Like it'll distract me from how insane their plan is.

#qt2753357-3 / read by Subhajit-81

<Prev / Quote 52 of 104 / Next>

They just keep repeating 'go faster than any man in the history of space travel', like that's a good thing.

And If you solve enough problems, you get to come home. All right, questions?

#qt2659215-5 / read by Akanksha-14

You solve one problem... and you solve the next one... and then the next.

That's all it is. You just begin. You do the math.

This is how I end. Now you can either accept that, or you can get to work.

<Prev / Quote 60 of 104 / Next>

And that's one you need to know, going in, because it's gonna happen to you. This is space. It does not cooperate.

#qt2659214-2 / read by Teja-84

<Prev / Quote 61 of 104 / Next>

The other question I get most frequently is. When I was up there stranded by myself, did I think I was gonna die? Yes, absolutely.

Now pay attention, because this could save your life. Trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

<Prev / Quote 81 of 104 / Next>

Now, NASA is an American non-military organization, it owns the Hab. But the second I walk outside I'm in international waters.

#qt2643181-3 / read by VIVEK-96

<Prev / Quote 82 of 104 / Next>

By another treaty if you're not in any country's territory, maritime law aplies. So Mars is international waters.

#qt2643181-2 / read by Akanksha-14

<Prev / Quote 83 of 104 / Next>

I've been thinking about laws on Mars. There's an international treaty saying that no country can lay claim to anything that's not on Earth.

Best guess, I forgot to account for the excess oxygen that I've been exhaling when I did my calculations because I'm stupid.

Luckily, in the history of humanity, nothing bad has ever happened from lighting hydrogen on fire.

<Prev / Quote 89 of 104 / Next>

I've got to make a lot more water. The good thing is, I know the recipe: You take hydrogen, you add oxygen, and you burn.

If none of those things happen, I'll eventually run out of food and starve to death.
