* AngelicAliens: [[http://webtoy13.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/beautiful-alien-mars.jpg The alien (possibly a hologram)]] revealed at the end of the film, who remained behind to seed Earth with life when her race fled Mars after a meteor collision devastated the planet. She is tall, regal and--unusually for a Space Angel--a strong orange in colour.

* ArtificialGravity: The Mars missions each use a ship with a rotating habitat area for centrifugal gravity generation. The gang had a lot of fun dancing Zero-G style in the central hub! Apparently, the cockpit module also served as a lander and return vehicle, leaving the question of whether or not the cockpit would re-couple with the drive section possibly left in orbit or if the astronauts would spend the return voyage completely in zero gravity.
