We will talk today about the accuracy of the movie “Tthe Martian”, and his friendship with the author of the book and his opinions about the book and the research behind it.  We will also talk about NASA’s policy on research, innovation and exploration for the next years. We will hear about the possibility that the Kepler Spacecraft may have observed traces of an advanced alien life on other solar systems, and more topics related to space and research.
