Kicking off my uber cool week at the largest air show in the United States, EEA Air Venture, I will be interviewing Andy Weir live on Google Hangouts. Yes, this is Andy Weir, the author of The Martian! I am really excited to have a chance to chat with Andy live and ask him about his book and his views about deep space exploration by humans in the future.
With the movie coming out in a few months, it is great to be able to visit with Andy and ask about the process of having his book turned into a movie as well. I imagine it was quite an experience, and we will hear all about it.
And guess what? You can participate too! That’s right! I will be taking questions for this fun chat from anyone interested in submitting them. Please submit them now using the #MartianChat hashtag. And hey–maybe a few people will live tweet the chat as it happens live to share some of what we talk about with those people on Twitter not watching! If you don’t have Twitter don’t worry–you can comment below with your questions as well.
