Matt Damon, stranded alone on Mars, no radio, no back-up, 'scienceing the
shit' out of how to survive for four years on just a few months worth of
supplies ... what's not to love about this fantastic film, based on the
best-selling novel by Andy Weir.

The NSW branch of Australian Science Communicators would like to invite you
to a special screening of The Martian, at Dendy Newtown (cinema 7) on
Wednesday 14 October at 6.30pm.

And we're gilding the science lily by having a post-screening talk/Q&A by
Professor Martin Van Kranendonk, director of UNSW's Australian Centre for
Astrobiology, recently returned from consulting with NASA on possible Mars
landing sites (which he could tell us about but then he'd probably have to
kill us).

*When*: Wednesday 14 October, 6.15pm for 6.30pm start

*Where*: Dendy Newtown, cinema 7, 261-263 King Street, Newtown

*Tickets*: $10 for ASC members, $18 for non-members
