Andy Weir self-published “The Martian” on his personal website in 2011. A publisher snapped up the rights, and his pet project made it to the New York Times best-seller list and went on to become an Oscar-nominated film. His new book “Artemis” looks at a fictional colony on the moon, where a female, black-market smuggler embarks on hijinks and adventure. Weir joins us to talk about “Artemis,” researching space exploration and his life since “The Martian” launched him to fame.
