Producer Simon Kinberg began developing the film after 20th Century Foxoptioned the novel in March 2013. Drew Goddard adapted the novel into a screenplay and was initially attached to direct, but the film did not move forward. Ridley Scott replaced Goddard, and with Damon in place as the main character, production was green-lit. Filming began in November 2014 and lasted approximately 70 days. Around 20 sets were built on a sound stage in Budapest, Hungary, one of the largest in the world. Wadi Rum in Jordan was also used as a practical backdrop for filming. Andy Weir, who developed a relationship with NASA after publishing the novel, involved the space program in working with Scott to accurately depict the film's science and technology.
The film premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 2015. 20th Century Fox released the film in theaters in the United Kingdom on September 30, 2015 and in theaters in the United States on October 2, 2015. The film will be in 2D and 3D.

Project-Based STEM Learning
The Occupy Mars Learning Adventuresis a special project designed to help to get kids excited about studying STEM(science, technology, engineering and mathematics). We have created a simulated aerospace company and we work on the challenges that we find at Space X and NASA. We have completed several robots, an international space station, habitats for everyone going to Mars,science experiments, lab software and a space mathematics program. Our new distance learning program will allow us to work with teachers and students from around the world. We need your help will soloing problems, podcasting news, story writing, robot design, electrical engineering, mathematics and concept formation. You can follow our work at:
Doug will be featured on Kids Talk Radio on September 18, 2015 at 10:00 am. We will post direct links to his audio podcast within one hour of his interview. You can find that link on this page. We will be taking kids to Antarctica and the Amazon Jungle and to some special geological field trips in southern California. Bob Barboza will be hosting the Occupy Mars Learning Adventures Workshops with three geologists in the Arizona desert. This is a teacher and parent training STEAM++ Occupy Mars Workshop for science and engineering afterschool and distance learning programs. The workshop group will learn about the creative ways we are integrating Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.

Astronomer Jerry Larsen and space science and robotic's educator Bob Barboza will co-host a live teleconversation with two unique astronauts riding NASA’s 747 jumbo jet to the edge of space. On board will be Star Trek’s Nichelle Nichols and Traveling Space Museum’s Ivor Dawson, peering through NASA’s stratospheric observatory for infrared astronomy (SOFIA). Once we connect with them, we will be able to see into areas of the cosmos where new stars are being born. Astronauts of all ages, as well as curious onlookers are encouraged to attend.

The Occupy Mars Learning Adventures Distance Learning Programs and Workshops
Students have an opportunity to study with scientists, engineers,and STEM and STEAM++ (science, technology, engineering, visual and performing arts, mathematics, computer languages and foreign language.) instructors. We are training students in grades 5 through 12 to become junior astronauts, scientists, and engineers. All of our students are trained in project-based learning with our team integrating Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards into their projects. Students have Occupy Mars Training Kits that take full advantage of the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and in November the new Apple iPad Pro's. Students will build robot science centers, Martian habitats, and new International Space Stations for Mars and the moon Europa. This new space science program is accessed through distance learning and hands on workshops. Student, parents and teachers are selected by invitation only during this beta stage of the program.

USA Women's National Volleyball Team players Cynthia Barboza (Team: Ufimochka) and Destinee Hooker (Team: Dinamo Krasnodar) had Russian fans yelling for our new good will international ambassadors of volleyball. This is a great way to improve Russian and USA relations. It was not long ago when Cynthia and Destinee were battling each other in the NCAA Semi-Finals in the great Texas vs. Stanford volleyball matchers. Now they are at it again in the middle of Ufa, Russia. Kids Talk Radio shot a video of the matches. We will be posting it on Kids Talk Radio Youtube. I am not going to tell you who won. Cytnhia and her new team were the underdogs. The word on the street in Russia was that no way could team Ufimochka get a victory this soon in the season over the high fly act of Destinee Hooker and her Russian Super League team.

The Kids Talk Radio Super Subs
This new program is all about getting kids excited about learning. The Super Sub Program was created by Bob Barboza to find a creative way to give public school teachers extra time to spend planning with their principal. The theory is that if teachers can plan better they can teach better. The Super Subs do not charge for their services. The schools do not have the resources to provide all of the needed time for planning that school principals need to be successful.
What is so special about the Super Subs?
We have found a unique way to get students to get excited about listening, speaking, reading, writing, and computing. All of our teacher are crossed trained in technology, language arts, and the performing arts.

High Motivational Learning Programs
Matt and Mikey Thorn are being homeschooled in Mississippi by their parents. These two lucky students go to Jr. Medical School for a few hours a day. The new distance learning high motivational Jr. Medical School program was created by Bob Barboza to get students to spend more time studying science beyond the traditional school curriculum. At first this program was only available for gifted and talented students. It has now been expand to give all students an equal opportunity to participate. “Our goal is to get this program is some of our nations poorest schools,” said, Barboza. It is designed to get students excited about science, technology, and becoming a medical journalist. Two of our student reporters got to cover the Doug Stoup story by satellite phone. You can listen to the full interview by clicking on the words, Doug Stoup Kids Talk Radio Interview. This is all part of the PNN Personal News Network and Jr. Medical School working together to bring you the student news that you can use. Lauren Elliothas been working with Barboza for the past five months on getting free access to PNN and Kids Talk Radio for all school children that can benefit by the program.
Jr. Medical School STEAM Plus Programs: Project Based Learning
Kids Talk Radio Connects Students from Mississippi and Antarctica Expedition via live web site.
Rohnert Park, CA - PNN.com, the personal news network site today announced that two students participating in an after school educational programs Jr. Medical School and Kids Talk Radio on PNN will be connecting directly with Antarctica expedition leader Doug Stoup as he travels to the south pole.
The two students are part of an online program, called Jr. Medical School, started by educator Bob Barboza and hosted on PNN.
"The idea was to establish a unique, distance learning program that was uniquely capable of connecting students anywhere in the world with exciting real world professional resources like Doug Stoup", said Barboza.
"It's exciting working with PNN", Bob Barboza, said. "We now have a common platform and exposure to the wonderful world wide resources that PNN can provide." Barboza added.
"The idea that I can teach kids in Mississippi from my office in California and use PNN to find and connect with someone like Doug is incredible. Where else could kids have live satellite telephone calls from a world class expedition leader like Doug Stoup, then find their interviews posted on the web site by our Kid’s Talk Radio science reporters to then be shared by anyone?" said Bob.
It's not only exciting for the kids, it's a great learning tool and a powerful platform for understanding and compassion."
The student's goal at Jr. Medical School is to monitor the medical condition of Doug Stoup as he travels to Antarctica. Doug is retracing the steps of Ernest Shackleton's 1915 attempt at reaching the South Pole.
"Our job is to find out as much medical information about Doug as possible. He has a first aid kit and we want to know what is in it. It would be great to find out his complete medical history." (Matt Thorn)
"Our assignment was to read about weather conditions in Antarctica and to make a medical plan to keep Doug safe." (Mikey Thorn)
