Astronaut Mark Watney is accidentally left for dead on Mars when an extreme sand storm causes his crewmates to have to abort their mission and head back to Earth. When Watney regains consciousness, what follows is practically a day by day (or “sol” by “sol”) account of his efforts to survive and, hopefully, get back home. (FMS)
