The astronauts--commander Woody (Tim Robbins), Jim (Creator/GarySinise), Terri (Connie Nielsen), and Phil (Jerry O'Connell)--are sent to find out what happened to the first expedition to Mars which sent a garbled DistressCall. They encounter a lot of challenges, including some in flight turbulence... in space! Where they have to do a perilous EVA repair. Mars itself is a treacherous planet, and the survivors of the previous expedition are not what they expected.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
