My Review of The Martian

Science and American ingenuity win the day!

But. In the future, can’t we put the people of color IN SPACE and make the white people solve all the science on the ground?

Science fiction’s purpose, quantified:

68%: Imagining a better world*
15%: Boobs
5%: Guns
5%: Spaceships
7%: Boobs with guns on spaceships

Crunch the numbers, Hollywood. Put Donald Glover on it.

*Including dystopias, as the negative space of a better world we could build if we considered the consequences of our current shenanigans. Like putting only white people in space.
