The response to this video has been huge. One of our biggest videos ever. We worked our ass off on these animations. Big shout out to Mike and Eli, our stellar animators. Also big thanks to Curiosity Stream, without them we simple would not have the budget to make something this ambitious. If you liked this video, you will love that Armstrong documentary on CS. It gives me some serious goals to work towards. Packed with information and beautiful story telling.

It's weird to me that 2000 rpm is considered high. A competition style RC helicopter for "3D" flight will spin its two 700mm main rotor blades between 2000 and 2500 rpm. The ones made to break speed records are in the 3000 rpm range.

So much Tech ! And an RTG is way better than Panels :D but still it would be beneficial to have compressed air on that arm to dust of the thing. why does nobody think about this ? or is it like:" nah thats to much weight", "but it already weighs a ton and it is beneficial?" "it costs money!" argument ?

I know it would be a worthless mission but I think it would be cool if they sent a rover to look for the other rovers see how they are doing
Thats definitely not worthless, but instead of rovers, humans would do. And they would bring back our old buddies and have them fixed up and help in more stuff on mars

well, that's not exactly insane engineering, we use the same technology to contuct experiments here on Earth, let's say it can be considered as insanely efficient, due to the harsh environment of Mars and, of course, its distance from us, that requires for these robots to be very efficient and autonomous along their journeys.

Woe to them, then woe to them from the severe chastisement of the new extended-additional (virus)! Or do you think that your vaccines will protect you from the severe punishment of Allah from what you call it coronavirus?! How often have I swore to you in each explanatory-statement that my Lord will increase extended-additional (virus) after extended-additional (virus) of what you call it coronavirus? And I did not say to you that it will be modified, or will evolve, or will become different according to your claim. In fact, we said to you that it is soldiers from Allah the All Mighty, the Praised. And each virus is new extended-additional (virus) in addition to the extended-additional (virus) before it, in fact it is greater than the extended-additional (virus) before it and more annihilation and speed also faster plotting! Indeed, there is not turn back for Allah’s war until you declare surrendering then raise your hands towards the sky being submissive to Allah Lord of the worlds and abase yourselves, also beseeching Allah to remove His chastisement away from you in order to follow His Book so you would obey Allah’s khalifa the chosen from your Lord over you. You do not have a right of veto against decisions of Allah about selecting His khalifa, glory be to Allah the Great, the Exalted Most High beyond measures! He creates and chooses whom He pleases. To choose is not yours. Glory be to Him, the Exalted Most High beyond measures above what you associate (with Him). www.awaited-mahdi.com/forum/showthread.php?p=343421 #nasser_mohammad_alyemeni

What if Mars was obliterated millions of years ago! When i say that I mean the outside of the planet! The beings on the planet had burrowed into the planet millions of years ago! You won't bother them until you start digging! You get water on Mars for 3 months of the year on the North Pole as we'd call it! They could collect that and live within the planet! Musk has started to burrow into the earth for fast vehicle travel! I wonder if it's starting for us just like what happened to Mars!

Enjoyed the show and may pay for more! But my Irish-sounding friend I am a retired ( 8 years ) USAF Crash Rescue Fire fighter and (14 ) Years US. Navy Air Crew Survival Equipmentman ( Aviation Life Support Systems ) and working at NASA on the Spacesuits would be the mecca of my job expertise. ..! But I am also a UFO BUFF and Air Craft Buff since I was 14 Years old watching Project UFO based off The Air Forces Project Blue Book !...I have seen just about every show that covered this subject matter before my military life and well after I have retired! Seen the SR-71 in 1970 when It landed with an emergency at my base Mealstrome AFB, MT! After retiring in 93 I took a contractor job working tor McDonnell Douglas / Boeing at NSAWC/ TOPGUN at Fallon Nevada, 130 miles from Area -51! I have talk to many F-4, F-5, F-16, F-14, F-15 Pilots long before VF-41 Pilots saw the Tic Tack UFO and other sightings! During all of my Data collections, I know of every UFO sighting around the world, and three years before I got station at Maelstrom AFB, MT there was a UFO that shut down all the Missile in the area and I have even been down inside a launch capsule out in the Montana boondocks and through co-workers, I know this to be true and factual as I later was a member of the Air Forces REDHORSE Crash recovery Deployment team ! I have to ask you, Are you aware of the Two Different NASA's? For years we have heard the reports of a flying Triangle Craft that has been seen all around this world for many years, Even the Tic Tack has been seen years before the Nimitz VF-41 F-18s spotted it! Now I hear it took 7 months to reach MARS! I hear we have a SpaceCraft the can go to mars and be bach before Noon! Maybe the TR3B ?.... Why are we paying for NASA and the Black Projects and get lied to about all this old space Travel BS and keep pumping $$$$$$ into NASA, Are we this stupid????? Phoenix, AZ 1997, thousands saw it, Brent Warters UK saw the same stuff as Maelstrom AFB saw ??? I think we can handle the truth and stop farting around with this landing on MARS when we have the so-called SPACE FORCE now SOLOR WARDEN as it was called! Bob Lazar's story and the many many people who have seen with their own eyes as I have! Don't panic the people, because truth is we are the low hanging fruit and if " They " wanted us gone they would have done so! It's time the truth came out and stop all this slow boat to China BS ! ( Excuse the Spelling and Bad grammar I had to speak my peace ! ) We are being Lied to! .....Man in Black !
