      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. Jacob Davis

        you talk like the guys from trailer park boys

      2. Salar Younis

        Amazing job on this video, thank you!

      3. Zero Sugar

        now that is absolutely insane

      4. john Duong

        Hello Real Engineering, You guys designed rovers and why not design a AI Robot that looks like a human so we would have a hands on you could build a some of the body part as a solar panel if possible so it can have the energy and you can have something to close it so no dust can get in

      5. Rhiannn :3

        woahhhhh, so cool. can't wait to hear what kind of info it'll tell us!!

    2. Elmas Nasıl Bulunur

      Congratulations to NASA

    3. Connor O

      He said Centrifugal force 16:13

    4. Richard Green

      Don't get me wrong, I LIKE this tech story. mind always goes back to those gravity-defying craft we saw captured on video by US Navy fighter jet gun cameras!!! My conspiracy theory is this...what IF humans have that anti-gravity tech in hand...but feel SO compelled to keep it a secret that every now and then they put on a show about ordinary tech...such as keep us in the dark about what they can REALLY do!!!

    5. Hot potato

      Please properly pronounce "mars", not "maers".

    6. Narke

      Perseverance is not like curiosity just becouse they look same and landed on same planet does not mean they are same

    7. Deadstick

      Better be insane because the price tag is.

      mark my words .. this rover will get stuck in dust in no time with those wheels .. to drive on sand you must have soft enclosed tires "deflated tires on earth" .. open sides and hard tires are just asking to dig in .. maybe the rover is light , maybe mars gravity is weak .. still this is wrong .. also there is no mechanism to get out if it gets stuck .. in desert you use a plank of wood under wheel .. such a system could be added for 2 dollars .. yet there is none .

      1. Narke

        @أمادو I think a lot of it is because of wight, if there was no limit to that they would put tracks on it

      2. Narke

        @أمادو well we can ask them about this on public stream

      3. أمادو

        @Narke what does that mean ? .. previous rovers got stuck repeatedly and some wheels broke totally while the others broke bit by bit until both rovers got stuck in sand turning into stationary observers .. this rover will do the same as they didnt change the core concept of wheels .

      4. Narke

        than why did all rovers together stuck 2 times and one managed to get unstuck?

    10. Qsb

      happy to see that france is participating in this mission by having built the Supercam with micro etc.. Good luck Perseverance

      1. Joanna

        This is bonkers. I had no clue you guys made the animations aswell! So much hard work and dedication into both the rover and this video! Thank you guys!

    11. Mário César

      Unbelievable. It is not science FICTION. Thanks for the video.

      1. Narke

        @Joanna they accomplished something that you never will

      2. Joanna

        It's just a fucking rover like curiosity and many more us had sent to Mars. Idk why everyone is freaking out like NASA has setup a human colony or something.

    13. Golden Bee

      Is there any possibility to get real time information when new pictures arrive our earth?!? Greetings from Germany

      1. Narke

        @Golden Bee you mean how long it takes them to get public?

      2. Golden Bee

        Yes sure. But is it possible to become a push information when the NASA show them official?

      3. Narke

        it takes 14 minutes to receive data right now but but it will change, so every transmission (incl. photos and videos) takes around 14 minutes

    14. Murat Salman

      The way you say "Mars" triggered me a lot during the whole video.

      Holy shite!! Do we really need to bring back soil from mars?!? 😬 I think I’ve seen this in a movie somewhere

      1. Narke

        yes we need, we can't send a lab there. And space movies are trash today they just try to make you scared

    20. Snowwie

      You cannot see any American documentary, series, show or whatever to ALWAYS see somewhere an American flag. Sometimes it's a bit over the top.

    21. Roompa Mahato

      While UFOs are visiting a thriving planet called Earth, we are visiting a dead planet called Mars. Apart from my PJ, this animation of Perseverance is insane!

    22. Right Stuff

      superb info.. thanks for sharing bro.. All the best to your future mission to the red planet.

    23. mrTrashForTheBin k

      we cannot discover cure of cancer, but we can send robots to mars for the benefit of human race

      1. Narke

        first lear about benefits and then talk shit

        it's interesting how we can send rover to planet billions of kilometers away and made this amateur mistake XD

    38. Michael Johnson

      Oh dear, you're one of those people. There's no such thing as a stereotype other than what you make.

      Would you mind telling us what kind of Technology they used to control And communicate with that Amazing Engineering!

    48. Aerohk

      The engineering is alright.. they should have flown SpaceX

      1. Narke

        they have to support more companies so SpaceX get lazy and starts asking for Gods money and stop innovating

      One missed opportunity is the fact that they forgot to bring food bait, just in case their is life on Mars I'm sure big or small they'll will at least try and go to it.

    62. Greg

      I wish you all the life long enough to see outcome of events we are witnesing here. i'm very curious how far humanity can push it.

      5-4-3-2-1 ok light the propane torch regulator, turn on the smoke machine, and for goodness sake will someone let that balloon go this time. Weeeeeee, another balloon let go. Now we can film it for 10 minutes as it gets up to 60 mph. Oh Brother!

    70. Internet User

      The Insane Engineering is controlling your own mind. Get a life.. this is nothing but a piece of shit polluting mars

      1. Narke

        get a life and stop writing this comments

    71. Rob Black

      Earth is flat. Globe is a lie. Nasa is money black hole. You are being lied to. Research FLAT EARTH.

        nice joke bro

      13:08 won't the wind on on mars or a storm gonna blow these away?

      1. Narke

        it won't blow them away but it will burie them, idk how they won't to dig them out after that

    76. aleste37

      Great work on this video! Will you discuss in the future posibilities of skutterudite and RTGs in other applications? Space's cold vacuum seems to be the best place, but what about earth or the the artic?

    77. Ricardo Sebastian

      There is nothing wrong with God's creation in heaven, it is not a wise human dwelling, because it is among those that will be destroyed when judgment comes and I hope that God's promise in heaven will be a dwelling place and no new heaven and earth can be paired there. that is the holy city that will soon come.


      This is real like the coronavirus

      1. Narke


    79. GTA V Decoders

      what happened to the ship carrying the perseverance after it deployed the rover..we kind of see it fly away did it land away from the rover or left mars atmosphere?

    80. Jenny Kemp

      No one is going to Mars. Your dreaming

      1. Narke

        no one cares about your opinion, you are dreaming

    81. Gil

      the sand storms are gonna buried those samples...

      1. Narke

        nasa after it happens: Wait, how did this happend, we are smarter than this

    83. Jesse Eastwood

      Thank you so much for your hard work in making this video. It answered alot of the many questions i have about this new technology we are testing.

    84. chip midges

      lol. More animations. Is this the best billions can buy?.....for a fake mission? Wake up people.

      1. Narke

        I think pigeon outside is watching me as I write this, send help

    85. Altin tiranë

      No body went to the moon. Don't laugh at your self. It's the same NASA Hollywood movies.

      1. Narke

        man, there are mirrors to measure how far Moon is, you can nasa ask for for coordinates and receive laser ls you send. But wait, it can disprove your theory and it will take more than read Facebook post, so I think you will not try that you lazy ass

      2. Altin tiranë

        @Szymon Brzezinski It's random from the engineers of Nasa to be involved in witch craft?! If you check you can find the first team of NASA engineers who made the first space ship were involved in witch craft does that mean something to you?!

      3. Szymon Brzezinski

        Meanwhile all engineers and physicists are saying that we went to the Moon, but you, random guy on internet says that it didn't happen

    86. Prajwal Steve.

      I love theory of this thing, but when it comes to math I fail... Dono why?

    88. craig anderson

      People really believe this shit?

      1. Narke

        yes we do and we will not stop believing that cuz you need to do more than read Facebook post

    89. Gino Vanelli

      Great video. A bit disappointed by the white shirt, black tie = a nerd, bur blue polo shirt = not a nerd comment. Hope I’m still alive for 1st manned landing.

    90. CS Anton

      Lol of these are the kind if content i will be seeing at curiosity stream, then sign me up!! Can i watch it on ky android tv like netflix so that people at home can maximize its content?

      So moxxie will be freeing Carbon on Mars with its oxygen creation then ? Are we creating a problem on Mars like they accuse us of doing on Earth ?by the way there is no Insane technology on this system it’s one of the sanest set ups yet , stop abusing the meaning of words .... leave that to the Democrats ....

    94. Skillful Man


    95. Miki Babic

      I just have to say that the production quality of the video is amazing. Not that your other videos were bad in that aspect, but this one just stands out. Truly great job guys, and an amazing episode. Thank you!

    96. cool rat kid

      thes nerds i watch this only cuz teachar sent link

    97. Ning Wu

      The roadmaps that NASA has planned ahead made goosebumps on me. The first impressive task is (a) to test the O2 making device, (b) to shoot a much bigger device up to make O2 and store the O2 in a tank, (c) to send humans there to use those O2 stored. My mind is blown away. It will basically store enough O2 for human missions. The second impressive task is (a) to send another rover, (b) to collect the samples that Perseverance is going to be left on the Mars surface, then (c) to send them back with a rocket launched from Mars. My mind is blown away again. It will test the round trip and prepare it for future human operations. Clearly, human landing on Mars is a matter of time. Compare to those, autonomous driving on Mars seems less impressive. :-) Anyway, Perseverance is loaded with the high techs on earth. Kudos to these scientists, engineers, and project managers!

      1. Narke

        it is mission as big as yo mama lol
