According to a filmmaker, a subject of H2O on Mars came adult during his discussions with a agency.

“I knew that months ago. When we initial talked to Nasa, we got into all kinds of things and we said, ‘So we know you’ve got down there (these) large glaciers.’ And he said, ‘Yeah, that a large white thing (on a aspect of Mars) that gets lonesome with dust, we consider that’s ice.’

“And we said, ‘Wow! Does that meant there was an ocean?’ Are we right now what Mars was 750 million years ago?’ And they went, ‘Uh, good question.’ So they wish to go adult there and find out,” he said.

But Scott specified that he usually schooled about Martian H2O after a film went into production, provident him from carrying to adjust a plot.

“(Damon’s astronaut) would’ve found a corner of a glacier, definitely. It would be fascinating. But afterwards we would’ve mislaid a good sequence. He has to make water, and a bubbling device, and put adult a cosmetic tents, that creates a humidity, that grows a plants, that is a many simple form of irrigation,” he said.
