Teddy agrees. She notifies Venkat, who calls a meeting with Teddy and director of media relations Annie Montrose. Teddy decides not to inform Commander Lewis; the news could distract the Ares 3 crew, and Teddy is not prepared to risk their safety. Though they cannot communicate directly with Watney, NASA begins tracking him with Satellite imagery and starts developing a rescue plan.
The novel once again takes up the log-entry structure. Watney has developed daily routines and is successfully growing potatoes. Watney digs it up and moves it to the rover.
With the rover modifications complete, Watney starts planning for a twenty-day trip. The team discusses their plan to keep Watney alive long enough for rescue by speeding up the process of making the Ares 4 pre-supply probe and sending it to the Ares 3 site. He reaches Pathfinder, loads the small Soujourner rover and the larger Pathfinder probe the part with the radio onto the rover. After he returns to the Hab, Watney successfully repairs the Pathfinder and Sojourner.
Pathfinder acquires a signal.
Teddy gives Mitch permission to inform the Ares 3 crew that Watney is alive. Most of the team is overjoyed, but Lewis blames herself for giving the order to abandon Watney. In the following days, Watney manages to repair the Hab, but the soil and young potato plants are now dead.
The supply probe will arrive Sol , but, with the potatoes dead, he only has enough food to last until Sol By doing so, they launch the probe with a faulty bolt that comes loose, throwing the probe off-balance. Iris crashes into the ocean.
Meanwhile, astrodynamicist Rich Purnell has found a way to get Hermes back to Mars in time for a flyby on Sol Though the Purnell Maneuver is more likely to succeed than Iris 2, it risks 6 lives rather than 1. Teddy chooses to stick with Iris 2. Mitch, convinced Teddy has made the wrong choice, leaks the Purnell Maneuver to the Hermes crew. There is no way to get Pathfinder back online.
Watney spells out Morse code messages to NASA using rocks and continues on with the rover modifications.
Meanwhile, on Hermes, the Taiyang Shen resupply probe successfully docks, and Johanssen and Beck are falling in love. Then, he sets out for Schiaparelli and the MAV 4 site. Watney determines that the storm is north of him and moving west; he can avoid the storm by traveling south, then east. Watney successfully circumnavigates the dust storm, but as he drives into the Schiaparelli crater, the rover rolls, and the trailer breaks loose and flips.
The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?
