Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet - never revealing who the father is.

A major point in the plot is that Sarah Elliot's pregnancy will be complicated by the "Zero-G" environment. However, external views of the spacecraft clearly show that its engines are on, meaning that the ship is under thrust, and thus is generating g-forces in the direction opposite to that thrust. In any event, even if this brief glimpse is not representative of the entire voyage, it is highly unlikely that a manned mission to Mars would coast in free fall all the way, but would instead use the "turn and burn" method, accelerating to the midway point, flipping over, and decelerating to the end of the journey. Thus, the constant presence of acceleration would create g-forces that would eliminate the very peril for Sarah's pregnancy the film describes. See more »

I WANTED to love this movie. But this movie needed at least two re-writes and they said no. The actors did their job but the story was weak. And it was so Ham-handed with the romantic bull. I am really angry in the sense that this will inspire Hollywood not to make scifi movies -
