Re: The Martian by Andy Weir

I hear its now being made into a movie, which will come out next year.
So what advice would you give the movie producers.
I think they should use this as a guideline for astronauts walking on Mars.

Notice that the gate is quicker on Mars walks than on Moon walks. The producers of the movie should strive to get the walking right, they have all sorts of CGI to make that happen.
