An astronaut becomes stranded on Mars after his team assume him dead, and must rely on his ingenuity to find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.
On September 28, 2015 (four days before the film's scheduled US release), NASA announced that it had found evidence that briny water still flows on the surface of Mars.

When Watney reaches the Hab with the antenna sticking out of his suit, he takes off helmet and upper chest cover. Then he pulls the antenna out of his abdomen and throws it on the floor. Then he grabs some surgical tools and extracts the remaining piece of the antenna tip and takes the antenna out of the surgical tray nearby to match the tip up to the end of the antenna. How did the antenna get into the surgical tray when he had thrown it on the floor?
Disco music, which had been a running gag throughout the film, is played during the ending credits. Appropriately, the first song played is "I Will Survive," which features the lyric "And so you're back, from outer space."
