Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The largest problem with this story is the scientific silliness of what is not meant to be funny at all. If an asteroid were threatening Earth, why would we create a Mars colony to deal with it? Why would we have so little idea what the aliens looked like when they're walking around for people to look at all the time? (No iPhones?) How can it be so easy to send rockets to and from Mars? Why would NASA ever admit a crew member who had panic attacks? One after another, the absurdities just keep coming.
