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

Pro: Jill earns (almost) everyone’s respect, and her trebuchet saves the day.

Con: Between her abrasiveness and her carelessness she’s hard to like.

Ned is a cardboard villain, mindlessly negative about everything.

It’s hard to see NASA allowing either type of person to go to Mars.
