Mars in Ad Astra (2019) movie

Ad Astra is a recent (September 2019) science fiction thriller set in mid-21st century when humanity has started to settle the inner Solar System. A son (Brad Pitt) is sent on a mission to uncover the truth about his father's (Tommy Lee Jones) long lost mission near Neptune which now threatens the survival of Earth. In his lonesome and dangerous mission he visits several places including a dynamic but wild human colony on the Moon and a desolate relay station on Mars. Here are some HD images from the Martian scenes in the movie.

  2. I think most movie makers do not quite keep up with technical trends & designs---the reason for the Saturn V look rather an Elon Musk design (movie people probably never even consulted with him anyway)---explains their limits somewhat.

    1. The design of the Starship changes so rapidly, it would already be outdated at the beginning of filming any movie ;)

  3. True. But the 2016 ITS-design still would be more realistic than an Apollo era design.

    1. Indeed. There are some recent computer games using that design.
