Mark Watney, an engineer and botanist trying to survive alone on mars but has little hope."Cause I'll surely die here." (1)This proves he is hopeless because he was not confident and did really have a reason to try to survive. He also didn’t really have much of a chance seeing his situation. So there wasn’t really a point for him to try to push on. After seeing what he had available to him he tries thinking of ways to contact NASA and trying to survive.

He starts trying to survive by growing potatoes and started making water. “Martian soil has the basic building blocks need for plate growth.” There only problem with the soil is there is no bacteria so he has to add his own feces to fertilize the soil. Unfortunately an accident that happened with the HAB result it him losing his whole potato crop. This has NASA rushing to find a way to get food to him before he staves to death.

Mark started developing a rover that could travel long distances and keep him alive for long periods of time. He then goes on a two week test to grab (an old rover) he then brings it home and NASA start trying to complicate with it. He then hooks it up it up with one of the other rovers and develops a way to email NASA and they begin communicating.

A failure happens with the Hab causing the airlock to rip away from the hab and fly across the plant with cause critical failure. He has to hurry to find away for him to get the hab back up and stay alive, the problem is now all of his crops are dead, and some of his waster is now lost.

He has fully transformed the rover and now is ready to travel to ares 4 it is going to be very dangerous and risky but it is a risk he has to take, one he reaches the site. The hermers then comes around and he has one chance to be pick up and they succeed!
