How would the Ares 3 crew deal with 10 days in complete isolation? This clip, pulled from the NASA archives, examines this scenario through a psychological debriefing the crew underwent before leaving for Mars. Complimentary data viz highlights individual crewmembers and a range of psychometrics.
The Prologue Campaign:
To launch The Martian, we worked closely with legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott to design a months-long original narrative that told the story of the mission from the public's point of view. Our goal was simple: Bring the world to life with the same cultural noise of the Cold War-era space race. The campaign included a series of scripted in-world prologue videos that introduced the crew, the mission, and the global response.
