Red Planet

In the near future five astronauts including their mission commander pilot and military robot-navigator A.M.E.E. (Autonomous Mapping Evaluation and Evasion), are making the first manned expedition to Mars. Their mission - search for solutions to save planet Earth from human extinction, but afterward on which something went terribly wrong.

Continuity mistake: In the earlier scenes on the planet's surface when the men still have their helmets on, it appears that the cameramen were also wearing space suits so that they would appear as crewmen on the visor reflections. Still too many people visible though.

Question: The ship is hit by a solar flare. But in that case shouldn't Earth advise them about the solar flare incoming? It is supposed that the Sun is constantly watched for solar flares, in case a human mission is en route. Shouldn't mission control on Earth be watching for any unusual solar activity to advise the crew? And they could warn them with time because radio waves go faster than solar flares.

Answer: The ship is not hit by a solar flare, it is hit by a gamma ray burst. It is a completely different, much more violent phenomena.
