      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.

      1. Gurpreet Singh

        Amazing video, thank you so much for the hard work!

      2. Lennon Mario

        @Keegan Cyrus Testing it out right now. Seems promising :)

      3. Keegan Cyrus

        dunno if anyone cares at all but in less than 15 minutes I hacked my girlfriends Instagram password using InstaPortal. Cant link here so search for it on google if you care

      4. Peter Parker

        @Sweetllew I dont have a link it was in the google scroll I do believe maybe type in recent fixes to the space station. I do believe they where putting an antenna on it

      5. Sweetllew

        @Peter Parker could you give me the link? It would be great to confirm or deny said evidence.

    2. Anthony Phung

      The coordinated treatment contrarily stretch because pickle syntactically land throughout a erect protest. macabre, large wallaby

    3. Tango Romeo Golf

      NASA is getting really good at CGI now.

    4. flymee drone

      Is NASA taking advantage of drone and automotive technology, or the oppposite?

    5. BlueGlasses

      UFO at 13:45!!!!!

    6. Mukul Dave

      Something as Human at least we must feel when we try find and search with huge amount money expense on no biological existence land 1. Where no human expect to reside like SAHARA if we could increase greenery then human can reside or shift to these part of earth. 2. Many parts of hills and terrains are no man's land if we could develop these regions then new localities could be developed 3. So many islands are vacate and people would ready to either purchase and develop or make over those island for residing purpose then many part of congested places would surely become more better habitat. 4. So many prisons are full with human can be shifted or utilised these man power for development of all above areas where in return they could earn money for their loved ones. Can any expense on MARS WOULD GIVE RETURNS FOR HUMAN ON EARTH IMMEDIATELY AFTER ITS EFFORTS LIKE FARMING IF YES GO AHEAD ON MARS.

    7. Nagy Sandor

      Just imagine what these guys would be capable of if the shithead politicians would be able to understand 0.1% of this. I mean the importance of these missions.

    8. Sorenkair

      3:08 lmao who approved of that idea for a billion dollar project

      Good nice video very much for

    13. Don'tBelieveTheHype IXXI

      NASA: 'We landed a rover on Mars' also NASA:' We may, one day, be able to travel above low-earth orbit'. I'll admit it's very entertaining stuff, but don't take it too seriously guys. They gotta give us 🇺🇸 something for our tax dollar$!

      1. Sam Sam

        Complains that nasa not even having basically a penny from the us.

      we are trying to do what UFOs have done on earth

    15. Steve Jefferson

      This is a military Pentagon has nothing to do with finding water or life...don't be fooled

      1. Sam Sam

        @Alex Siemers Some magic crystal or something.

      2. Alex Siemers

        What does Mars have that the pentagon would want?

      3. Sam Sam

        To do what?

    16. Giuliano Mango

      HAHHAHA, I was ok with Mers, even after the 3rd time, But when the narrator says "Sherp", I f-ing lost it rolling on floor gasping for air cough laughing.

      Now i realize, how a 5mark question (seebeck effect) could able to power an entire robot which gonna spend its whole life on other planet!!😃 Few concepts discussed were familiar, easily understandable and thanks for explaining in a detailed manner. PHYSICS ROCKS🤯 EVERYWHERE!?!

    20. Joseph Herrera

      Where can we get updates to see how the experiments turn out?

      1. Sam Sam

        Perseverance Twitter and following nasa

      2. Crawled Out Of Plato's Cave

        They probably „lost“ it. It’s their common excuse for their „experiments“.

    21. Blasko xx

      What they are planning with the samples is sooo cool.

      How can a parachute work with such a low atmosphere? It works on earth, how can it work on Mars for such a heavy object going so fast, when there s little to no atmosphere? Which translates to little to no air.

        And soon starlink satellite constellation to Mars, along with pre-supply and infrastructure landings.

    62. Duran

      Why wasting time on a dead planet like ugly Mars. They should focus on either building a massive spaceships 🚀 OR Go to valuable asteroids ☄️

    63. Duran

      Leaving samples on the surface of Mars is the stupidest idea I have ever heard 🤦‍♂️ First, the sand storms will buried all the samples 🤪🤪 Second, if you are sending a future robots already, what not let them drill the samples themselves 🤪🤪
