Description: Three crew members are stranded on the planet Mars due to a meteor shower. They must try and extract 'bug farts' for gas in hopes that it'll help them survive.

Summary: There's a crew of three flight members that are stranded on Mars. They encountered a meteor shower while trying to recover artifacts of an old space pod which they were to returna and it be displayed in a museum. Upton the meteors hitting the surface of Mars, it functures their fuel lines and all the hydrogen leaked out leaving them stranded. They end up coming up with an idea based off a rumor. There are supposed bugs which live below the surface that when they 'fart' or their waste produces the gas methane which they could use to power up their ship. They drill and start extracting gasses in the weather balloons they have on board. They finally extract enough gas to keep the ship powered up and warm so they dont freeze to death until help finally arrives.

Excerpt: As he stretched one of the weather balloons over the bore hole and fastened it in place, Faiyum kept up a steady stream of timeworn jokes. Bernstein groaned in the proper places and O’Connor sweated inside his suit while he laboriously welded the bullet-hole sized puncture of the fuel cell’s hydrogen tank.
