The Martian: Please Don’t Bring Him Home
… Since, NASA isn’t going to publicly embrace colonization, it should ditch SLS, fully back private sector launch services and focus on the amazing flight research and cool science that it does so well.

Hopefully the next great space film will feature an entrepreneurial astronaut choosing to stay on Mars and launching a business.
