Conflict/Problem-Mark Watney has 4 years
till Ares 4 (next Mars mission) gets to Mars,
and only has limited amount of food, which
he only has 300 days worth of food.
Cause-A sand storm with wind from 150
kph-175 kph that made the communication
dish to fly to Mark Watney stomach area.
Then that made it seem like he died. So then
the crew left think that Mark Watney was
died but he really wasn't.
One day everything is going to go south on you. You
can ether accept that and give up, or get back to work and keep trying.
How it was shown in the book-In the Martin, Mark Watney experience a lot of
success and a lot of failures. In the book Mark Watney has to survive 400 days on
Mars with only 300 day worth of food. He instead of sitting there waiting till he
died went to work. He grew potato plants in a plant that nothing grow, but then
the front airlock exploded which killed all his plants. He didn't give up there, he
instead sealed the hole and kept working.
