A multi-faceted story full of surprises!
NASA's plan to include women (in this case wives) on the crew was more the author's license to make the long 6 month journey to Mars more enjoyable--- is debatable.
This is a story of a "rescue mission" which turned into something far greater. I loved the movie, thought it was highly entertaining and especially liked the special effects(EVA's) and absolutely fabulous cinematography! If you are a SCIENCE FICTION buff you have to put this movie on your "must see" list.
