The Martian, Matt Damon

Twentieth Century Fox Film

Now that water has been discovered on Mars, it makes more sense than ever for humans to travel to the red planet.

And who better to visit than Matt Damon?

In The Martian (in theaters Oct. 2), the Oscar winner plays an astronaut stranded on Mars after his crew believes he was killed during an unexpected storm.

OK, Damon doesn't have the real NASA credentials for space travel, but it certainly is fun thinking about him somewhere out there.

With that in mind, we asked Damon what would be on his list of must-haves for a Mars getaway when we caught up with him earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Watch the video below for his hilarious packing tips. (Warning: Red Sox fans won't be happy!)

Directed by Ridley Scott and adapted from the novel of the same name, The Martian's cast also includes Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Donald Glover, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan and Aksel Hennie.
