When the first manned mission to Mars meets with a catastrophic and mysterious disaster after reporting a unidentified structure, a rescue mission is launched to investigate the tragedy and bring back any survivors.
The filmmakers received NASA's most up-to-date plans for a Mars mission when making the movie.
Like Maggie said: To stand on a new world and look beyond it to the next one.
The dust storm shown on Mars would not have been dangerous to the mission and would not have required the action blown the astronauts so. The air pressure on Mars is a mere 6 millibars (compared to Earth's 1013 millibars), so the "fierce" duststorm would have had the impact of a feather on the people and space craft.
