(at around 57 mins) When Terri attempts to rescue Woody she resets her fuel readout to 100%, it is then stated that by using only 50% of her fuel the remaining 50% would get her back, This is incorrect. The first 50% would allow her to reach a certain velocity in respect to the ship, the remaining 50% would only allow her to get back to the same velocity as the ship not to the ship itself.

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.
