      Loop whole potatoes grow underground but Mark did not have enough soil to do that and the movie showed the potatoes growing from above the soil like a tomato.

                You didn't mention the red planet's lack of magnetic field. It's what shields us in Earth from solar flares. He never would've survived that much exposure from the unfiltered sun.

                  Well, here’s the thing. I understand what you are saying, and I believe that MatPat would too, but the entire reason of this video was to see if the crap potatoes are something an average adult human male could live off of. I would agree more if this video was about if Matt Damen could survive on Mars in general, but that’s not necessarily what the point of this video is.

                      fun fact: Andy Weir (the author of the book) actually mentioned the inaccuracy of the storm. The original draft had Watney left stranded as the result of an engine test, but he changed it because he wanted nature to get the first shot in.

                                    Baha your facts are about as stretched as the movie but don't concern yourself it's not your fault having us dumbed down is "their" specialty "they" would have us believe almost anything such as a vehicle that can survive floating around in the heat and cold extremes of an even more extreme vacuum you know the same vacuum that rockets somehow shoot through? I think what is more important may be is the former sentence actually propper? Be honest I can take it!

                                      He would need fat in his diet though. Our bodies need fat to absorb many vitamins. He would have become malnourished regardless of how many supplements he took... unless those supplements had fat.

                                                  Does anyone really think NASA would send whole potatoes, which are 80% water, into space at $10,000 /pound?

                                                        I think one of the issues you point out you miss a key point. sure, mars is further away and gets less sunlight. However it has a much thinner atmosphere so not nearly as much of the radiation is reflected away.
