While there is a potential for disturb when applying high voltages of either polarity across the bit the circuitry needs to be carefully designed to avoid this problem...

I thought current had to go through a spin polarizing layer?

I thought the read current is spin-unpolarized, sensing the resistance - while the write current is spin-polarized, setting the resistance. If that is indeed the case then read-disturb should not be a problem...

If read long enough, the read current spin torque could flip the bit, no?

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
