Major props to Andy Weir – The Martian opened to a $55 million box office this weekend. His is a very inspiring story – he originally released The Martian as a serial on his website, only publishing it as a novel when his readers asked for it for their ease of reading. Now it’s been turned into a hugely successful movie and the book is a New York Time best seller.
Here’s a great interview of Andy by Adam Savage (of Mythbusters fame).
Congrats on your success Andy!
