Goofs

Addition to the already stated goof regarding communications with Earth. Since the Earth revolves around the sun twice as fast as Mars the gap in communications between Earth and Mars would increase a little every day. In fact, when Earth and Mars are at opposite ends of their orbit (farthest away from each other) the gap in communications between the two planets would take somewhere around 20 to 25 minutes. Not only that, when they are at their farthest distance apart the Sun would be between the two planets. That would probably result in a communications blackout that would last perhaps several weeks before the Earth could travel far enough in its orbit to avoid the Sun's interference with radio waves.
