Here’s a new mystery box for you science and science fiction lovers! The first box will ship at the end of the month, so I don’t have a review for you yet. But if you want to get in on the ground floor, I have a coupon code for 10% off! Use code: Chick10
You may want to hurry though, as the first box closes on October 29th.

Press Release info: Outer Places, the digital media company that explores the intersection of science and science fiction, is launching its Supply Pod mystery box program. Supply Pod uniquely delivers products themed around upcoming sci-fi releases and scientific events.

The first box is based on the real-life science behind Andy Weir’s debut novel, The Martian, which inspired the movie starring Matt Damon about an astronaut stranded on Mars.

“We can’t say exactly what will be in the box because the mystery is part of the fun! But it might include survival gear, astronaut essentials, engaging collectibles and much more.”

There are two options available for purchase, and more details are available at

The Essential Pod ($29.99 plus shipping, handling and tax) contains science and sci-fi items that would be great to have if stranded on Mars.

The Deluxe Pod ($39.99 plus shipping, handling and tax) contains all the items in the Essential Pod plus a paperback version of The Martian by Andy Weir, currently No. 1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list.

In addition, 50 Deluxe Pod customers could receive an autographed copy of The Martian.
