Is the martian based on a true story

Is The Martian (book) based on a true story?

No, not in the slightest. No human has ever been to Mars. Many people do seem to believe that The Martian is based on a true story, though, which is a testament to the attention to detail, quality, and accuracy of the story that the filmmakers had.

Is the martian based on a true story?

Actually, it started as a blog; one of my kids was reading it as it was being written. Andy Weir would create a problem for the character and he would attempt to solve it, sometimes with help from the readers in the comments section, which would also note problems created by the solutions. It's quite an unusual way to create a novel.

Is the movie “the martian” based on a true story?

um, no.. no one has ever set foot on Mars...yet. NASA is hoping to send a team of colonists there in the next 20 years

Was "The Martian" a true story?

Well, no. Sending humans to Mars is not even viable for at least another 15 years, maybe longer.

Andy Weir wrote the story as a monthly blog, which he then sold on Amazon as an eBook for $0.99. This was subsequently published as a physical novel, and picked up by Sony and made into the movie.

Judging by the many people that hit Twitter recently, to make mention of their friends and family members who asked this very question, I would say that it is a worthy question for Quora and not as silly as it first appears. I like Jeffrey Phillips's humorous, maybe a little snarky approach. Perhaps education isn't what it used to be, or more importantly, we are not educating people to educate themselves. Maybe it's just me. I guess actually reading is not a thing any longer?

Is Tristan and Isolde a true story?

I too hope its true. But not. Its just a legend some say.

Tristan and Iseult is a tale made popular during the 12th century through Anglo-Norman literature, inspired by Celtic legend, particularly the stories of Deirdre and Naoise and Diarmuid Ua Duibhne and Gráinne. It has become an influential romance and tragedy, retold in numerous sources with many variations. The tragic story is of the adulterous love between the Cornish knight Tristan (Tristram) and the Irish princess Iseult. The narrative predates and most likely influenced the romance of Lancelot and Guinevere in the Matter of Britain and has had a substantial impact on Western art, the idea of romantic love, and Western literature since it first appeared in the 12th century. While the details of the story differ from one author to another, the overall plot structure remains much the same.

Is it true that the movie The Martian was actually filmed on Mars?

No, The Martian was not filmed on Mars. So far no human has yet set foot on Mars so that would be kind of hard to do. They actually filmed it in Wadi Rum (also known as the Valley of the Moon)

Several other martian movies have been filmed in this location as well, such as Red Planet and Mission to Mars. It is about the closest we can get to Mars on Earth. Other martian movies have been filmed in the American Southwest and Mexico.

It seems that you are one of many people who believe the movie is based on a true story. It is not. As I mention before we haven’t even landed a human on Mars, much less made a habitable abode. The movie is set in 2035 and is actually based on a book of the same name. And while they did do extensive research to make it as realistic as possible, we are not yet capable of many of things demonstrated in the movie, including human travel.

Hope this clears up some of your questions for you.

My students say that "The Martian" wasn't based off of a real story, but it was right?

Yes... Of course. You must be stupid to think a man didn't go to mars and live of his own ****. Educate your students, please.

Was the Conspirators a true story?

Basically yes. There were a few things that were simplified -- for one thing, Surratt had more witnesses in her defense than the trial scenes portrayed -- but the basic facts of the story were accurate. Even the scene with the last-minute writ, though it sounds like Hollywood adding drama for drama's sake, mostly unfolded as depicted.

Is the new movie by Matt Damon "The Martian" based on a true story.?

Of course its true, his ship was actually made by Chrysler, luckily before Fiat bought them, otherwise Matt Damon couldn't have got there, Imagine it a Fiat would not have have made it all that way there. This I know because a friend of a friend who knows someone that works for fords has a sister who went out with a bloke who was gay who delivers the papers to a friend of another person that says he knows Matt Damon did really go there to make the film, and he done all his own gardening and stunts, so it did not look like it was fictional.
