Back From Mars

In 2040, Donovan took part in one of the first long term human trials of hibernation spending 10 years in suspended animation.

In 2055, Donovan took part in another long duration Hibernation trial, this one again lasting ten years.

In 2072, Olson was hired by the Bendross Corporation to command the Bendross III. It was felt that his skills as an astronaut and surviving the harsh environment of Mars would allow him to lead the Bendross III to a successful conclusion. He was physically 60 years old even though he'd been born 80 years previously.
Oliver Reed

In 2092 upon arrival at the Bendross System Olson was physically 61 years old.

After managing the initial approach and landings of the mission, Olson continued to manage the space presence of the Bendross Colony, and then retired to the surface where he lived happily with his new family.


For an image of what Olson's Mars adventure might have looked like see Mission to Mars , and then take out all the stupid crap where it wants to be 2001 and fails, and then imagine that the characters and dialog are actually well written.
