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.

Turns out there was, in fact, a photo of a rainbow on Mars, created yesterday. And do you know why I believe it? *because we have an actual photograph*. Let me ask you this: Why would NASA photo-shop in a rainbow into their photo? When science's tertiary goal is to have as many people believe in it as possible

@audio guru Please, show me where you saw the rainbow. In this video? This video is CGI. It was created before the mars landing even happened. Show me where you saw an actual image of a rainbow on mars, created by sunlight passing through rain, and not just created via refraction on the camera itself. It's the difference between a semi-circle of a rainbow (seen from ground level), or a full circle

Its interesting how much old Apollo technology is involved during entry, descent and landing the rover. The entry vehicle carries mass balances to shift its center of gravity away from its center of lift, which allows it to develop sideways lift perpendicular to its direction of travel. Then by continuously rolling the vehicle as necessary to redirect the lift the rover can be steered towards a precise landing area. The Apollo command module did the same thing during reentry. Also, the rover's terrain relative navigation system looks down and analyzes the terrain below, which allows it to avoid ground hazards and land in a safe spot. The Apollo lunar module's guidance system also brought the spacecraft down to a low altitude but then a human astronaut had to look down and analyze the terrain below and find a nice safe spot to touch down at. I guess whatever works is something you stay with.

Great engineering - except for the cameras. Perseverance has not produced any great hi-rez images from the planet from it's "technologically advanced" cameras. Either the cameras are crap or NASA is degrading the images on purpose. Is there any reason why NASA needs to hide what is present on Mars??? As taxpayers we are being shot-changed.

@cat videos it is at the moment, but with the right tech it can be habitable. Mars and the Moon are training grounds at the moment. If we had been investing the amount that each country spends on the military and wars and killing each other into the space industry, we would probably be far more advanced than we currently are.

@cat videos a lot of things could happen to earth as we've seen in its history - meteor strike for example, climate change leading to ice ages etc etc if Earth is our only home, then any of these extinction events would be the end of us. If we had two homes, we have a back up. The longevity of our species will be determined by our presence in space. We've done pretty well so far for thousands of years, but the longer we wait, the closer these events become.

Wow.... imagine how advanced a civilised species would be even if it were only 10,000 years ahead of us, let alone a million..! They could chop a limb off and regrow it in month. There's a big step to be found within energy and space, and we are nowhere near it yet. And the way we are going, we won't get too, we will be gone before anything special happens.
