Life on Mars
When I was a kid, I have always wondered what it would be like to live in another planet? When I grew up and I started watching movies where aliens eat people and invade Earth, I lost the curiosity. Blame it on Hollywood but I thought, it's better to just stay on Earth and be the only specie existing.
This all changed when I saw the preview of MARS on NAT GEO. It made me believe once again in the possibility that we could live on MARS or more probable is that my son could live on MARS.
Bridging the space between science and science fiction, MARS tells the story of mankind’s thrilling quest to colonize the Red Planet. This global television event redefines on-air storytelling by combining film-quality scripted drama and visual effects with a powerful documentary interviewing some of the best and brightest minds in modern science and innovation, including Elon Musk.
The scripted portion of MARS follows a crew of six fictitious astronauts in the year 2033 as they travel to Mars aboard the spacecraft Daedalus – Earth’s first-ever crewed mission to the Red Planet. When the uniquely qualified Daedalus crew arrive on Mars, they explore astounding wonders and grapple with unexpected challenges as they work to set up humanity’s first colony on the Distant Planet.
MARS also showcases an unprecedented collection of interviews with the world’s leading scientific minds. As the fictional story of the Daedalus crew unfolds, television audiences will hear real interviews with some of the most fascinating people on Earth, including astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson; business magnate and inventor Elon Musk; Andy Weir, author of The Martian (adapted into an Oscar-nominated film starring Matt Damon); and former NASA astronauts Charles Bolden, John Grunsfeld and James Lovell.
The show’s stars include South Korean-born singer, composer, and multimedia artist JiHAE, playing Mission Pilot Hana Seung; and Ben Cotton, known for sci-fi productions ranging from Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome to The Chronicles of Riddick, who takes on the role of American Mission Commander Ben Sawyer.
Due to my fascination, I started to wonder if my son would actually be interested in living on Mars and coz we had time, I decided to do a vlog of him and his answers. It was actually very interesting hearing the thoughts of an 11 year old child about life on MARS.
