#MarkWatney About the Shot: As you can see we have a lot of #GoPro’s mounted around the Hab. I use them in the Hab for recording my daily video log and to document my daily activities not to mention the one's attached to our suits! It's very important to capture footage of all my experiements and missions for future @NASA explorations. About the Shot: I shot this on Time Lapse Video, a very helpful mode for me while I'm working on a way to get back home. Shot in 4K on 0.5 interval. The reason I like this mode so much is that once I hit the shutter button the files created on the camera are a single mp4 file and easily viewable. #TheMartian #BringHimHome
