It's been a big year for Andy Weir, author of acclaimed sci-fi novel The Martian. His bestselling book -- originally published serially for free on his personal website -- was turned into a similarly excellent movie starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain, a pretty big turn of events for someone who was self-publishing just a few years ago. If you have any burning questions on the science of The Martian or how to get your own work published and turned into a Hollywood blockbuster, today's your chance: Weir is doing a live broadcast Q&A today on his Facebook page along with his friend Randall Munroe, best known as the creator of beloved, unclassifiable web comic XKCD.

The video chat kicks off at 5:30PM ET direct from Facebook HQ, and you can submit questions for Weir and Munroe now here on Facebook. If you've been dying to know how to turn your apartment into a ball pit, now's your chance. If you want to get a question in, you should probably do it fast -- the Facebook comment thread is already filling up with queries, and we don't imagine Weir and Munroe will be sticking around for hours to get to them all.
