During an interview with FOX411, Matt Damon revealed that the production seek for some professional advice from NASA the whole time. He, then, shared his experiences as he struggled for survival in the alienated place without expert training. "This proposition of, alright, could the right guy, if he was really highly trained, survive on Mars for an extended period of time? And so starting from that proposition [author Weir] kind of let the science completely dictate the story," he said.

Damon also said that every same person would do what his role has done in the film if they were in his shoes. "And everything that Mark does is exactly what you would have to do, kind of step by step, if you were going to survive. So yeah we needed it to be heavily based and researched."

The movie producer Aditya Sood was the first one to notice Andy Weir's novel, according to his interview in Arstechnica. He also admitted that "The Martian" was one of the warmest and funniest books he has ever read, reiterating the part that science fiction books lack those qualities nowadays.
