  • Thank you for the dice documentary

  • I hope Nasa puts rovers on Venus too.

  • I am 68 years old and I watched the lunar landings from the UK where I am from .

  • Interesting since has no limit

  • They should add air blowers on solar panels so dust can be removed and mission works for long

  • space...

  • I love this, so way are we still inventing weapons to kill each other?

  • Great video 😎🇺🇸👽

  • 인간이여 영원하라!

  • I loved this machine that will do all these tasks . My full respect for all the guys who worked on this project so hard for the sake of humanity .

  • very informative video

  • How about designing a universal hub for the rovers to go to that can get recharged and have their solar panels either blown or brushed. These rovers would then go on for a lot longer. Maybe they could deliver these samples to robotic science hubs.

  • wow thank you I will not be alive probably when a man or woman sets foot on Mars but I believe that this is so awesome to watch right now because I get to see mars from the earth in my home now. Thank you to all who made this possible. I did get to see a man set foot on the Moon and that to me was so exciting. It is too bad that we do not have a station on the moon where we can produce oxygen and send it to mars if needed. Or other things that we could grow on the moon under its surface. We could make things on the moon and relay it to mars as the payloads come back and forth from the space station. If you were sitting on Mars could you see any other planets like we see the moon or the sun or all those stars that we see at night? will ever 2 rovers meet and a picture of this meeting be taken to show the first meeting on Mars-like two humans meeting for the first time that would be amazing and a picture of that sent back to earth. Perseverance I thank you for the hard work you are doing and for helping mankind to be able to come to you someday on Mars.

  • This is too complicated already better yet send humans and back.

  • may be someday, the rover can bring small cactus plant.. and planted on mars surface with some water suply..

  • In the decades to come, we will start inhabiting other planets and probably get to know other human like advanced living beings in other planets. Before Colombus discovered the other lands people were already living, but disintegrated. His voyage connected people and make empty lands inhabited. Now we do the same in the universal scale

  • You should note that landing rovers is a success as vehicles for a more versatile vehicle observing Mars as what it is now with Perseverance. Landing a copter is a big stride which lucky with a rover for bringing copters that is and a lots of samples from the ground. Copters are fast and airborn while rovers are multifunctional. More vehicles, portable that is, is needed. For portable stations until then. By then you can now have some permanent observation stations to see how Mars goes day in and day out.. and more equations. Well demand is there and it looks very, very promising not only for Science but especially for Mankind himself. Thank God for the new Frontier!

  • Yet my phone can't even handle a picture of the moon on a clear night 🤣

  • Why not set down at opportunity and clean it up and move on...

  • everything seems went according to plan! congrats!

  • Come on humanity - look what we can achieve! I had hoped I'd stick around to see some of us walking around kicking the dust of the Red Planet, but all of this will have to be enough and it probably is. A wonderful achievement.

  • landing technik and mic with mars first helicopter drone

  • Incredible

  • We will be starting from the bottom, with all the technology that we would have to build to sustain life in our New planet, this is how alien technology begins. Circumstances and resources change. Different results!

  • It seems like is earth and they chose the area very well!!!!

  • There needs to be a Mars orbiter space station first. Then landings

  • i am a great fan of mar's exploration since Curiosity landed.. now Perseverance and Ingenuity.. all I want to have is a perfect grade scale model on my desk.. I can't find one... I wonder if NASA release these adult scale models to help fund the project, for sure most of us will appreciate and patronize it, even in small amounts to help..

  • It all sounds great, except for one thing, the technology to protect humans from the high radiation levels on Mars doesn't exist.

    • Easy, create an electromagnetic field.

  • Living in Florida US for a Years I know the Reason Why I'm here and working..

  • I was 26 yrs old and when I grow elder I want to visit Mars with nasa and it's team Now I'm working in Space X Team In Florida I'm an Indian

  • Why can't they analysis the samples on the rover instead of having to wait all that time, it seems a bit stupid to me??? .

    • It will do tests on Mars with the technology that it has but they also intend to bring back samples to test the material here on Earth with equipment that could not be sent. Additionally, technology is constantly improving - if the samples are on Earth, then you can use the new technology instead of waiting 10 years for it to be implemented on the next rover, which could very well not even make it to Mars in working order. So no, it is not "stupid".

  • I'm too old to witness humans landing in Mars by TV. May be I will be there waiting for them arrive.

  • when sherlock characters name used in perserverance

    • The names are actually acronyms: SHERLOC (Scanning Habitable Environments With Raman & Luminescense for Organics and Chemicals) WATSON (Wide Angle Topographic Sensor for Operations eNgineering) MOXIE (Mars Oxygen ISRU Experiment) MEDA (Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer) PIXL (Planetary Instrument for X-Ray Lithochemistry) RIMFAX (Radar Imager for Mars’ Subsurface Experiment)

  • WHAT'S DIFFERENT This TIME?

    • @Carol Meier Narrator - revoeciov yes

    • MOXIE, Range Trigger, Relative Terrain Navigation, Ingenuity Helicopter, RIMFAX, Sample collection and storage, helmet and spacesuit samples, SuperCam, SHERLOC, microphones.....

  • Why don't NASA manufacture a Drone to discover Mars? It might be much more easy to move, avoiding danger of stuck in sand.

    • ingenuity helicopter is attached to the bottom of perseverance

    • Well, not sure if you realized but in this presentation it was mentioned that there is a drone included in this mission.

    • mars atmosphere is the same density as earths... if you were at 100,000 feet. highest a drone on earth has ever flown is 33k feet highest a helicopter has ever flown is 40k feet. its impossible for normal drones or helicopters to fly at 100k feet. Thus the design of nasa's helicopter

    • The atmosphere on mars is extremely thin. The drone would need to be so lightweight that they wouldn't able to fit as many scientific instruments as a rover or lander

    • Mars has dust storms

  • Me too. I remember the Apollo missions. For some reason I think that humans are already there.

  • *#Nice** atmosphere for a parachute.*

  • Mars is cool but I don’t think it’s the answer. After all it is a “dead planet” I think we would want to look elsewhere.

    • Mars is the closes planet to Earth in our solar system, they are testing different ways that we can use to possibly land on planets further into space.

    • How did you realize that is dead? It may very well be. However, amongst the many goals of Perseverance there are also the topics of whether there was life on Mars long time ago and how Mars "has died".

    • Maybe in the near future it might be useful to us.

  • لماذا لا تترجموه لنا نحن الغير قادرين على فهم اللغه الانكليزيه لكون لانجيدها

    • @Carol Meier Narrator - revoeciov Thanks for your hard and smart work to please everybody on this planet Earth with different languages and backgrounds. Very much appreciated!! Keep up the great work you've been doing! Cheers,

    • يرجى التحقق من الترجمة. لقد قمت للتو بتحميل ترجمات باللغة العربية.

  • Great information thanks bro ...

  • We proud of nasa

  • I was devastated when Opportunity ‘Finally’ succumbed to the Martian environment. Outlasted it’s use-by-date by many years.

    • I hope one day humans recover those rovers to honour them in a museum.

    • Everything has an end, my friend. That's the bad news, but the good news was it had managed to survive for many many years beyond its initial lifespan. Every hour (30 minutes each way for the data to be received and sent from it) was an extra bonus for free. I would NOT ask for more than what it had accomplished. Cheers,

  • The engineers and scientists that are involved in this are truly genius

  • It's exciting to know that Mars had large bodies of water on the surface! To find out where the water dissipated to will be a very interesting discovery, since water is the secret to life and the formation of our atmosphere! And the idea of setting up an internet system between the planets is also very exciting and amazing! We are setting up shop national, International, and now interplanetary! 🔧 🔨 🗼 😁

  • It doesn't seem practical to send humans when robots could be sent instead.

    • Truem but robots have no imagination. They can't think of what might be. As yet they don't speculate.

  • This seems to be a part of long term in the future project. What if humans develope more brand new technology to do space missions in different ways, before mars mission is done?

  • How do they avoid high winds? I would like to receive current weather reports. AI assume there are day and night cycles?

    • High winds are not a problem, because the atmosphere is so thin - about 1% of that on Earth. Even very fast wind would feel like a gentle breeze. It's not like was shown in that movie. Yes, there are day and night cycles, similar to Earth. A day lasts for bout 24 hours and 40 minutes. Unlike the previous rovers, Percy isn't powered by solar panels, so it can work at night. It's powered by radioactive plutonium.

  • 12:14 did they just named that camera from a Sherlock Holmes character? Cool

    • The names are actually acronyms: SHERLOC (Scanning Habitable Environments With Raman & Luminescense for Organics and Chemicals) WATSON (Wide Angle Topographic Sensor for Operations eNgineering) MOXIE (Mars Oxygen ISRU Experiment) MEDA (Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer) PIXL (Planetary Instrument for X-Ray Lithochemistry) RIMFAX (Radar Imager for Mars’ Subsurface Experiment)

  • No self-cleaning mechanism? I wonder why they decided not to do it which judging by the video not mentioning it, it was not included. Pretty sure they had a good reason which Im curious to know.

    • I was thinking the same thing. Why not brushes - like windshield wipers - for the solar cells and camera lenses? That seems pretty simple compared to all the other things.

  • Am so proud of human ingenuity to design, build and send a craft this sophisticated to another planet! Now, is also the time to get business partnerships going!

  • Great narration voice Carol, I'm so glad you don't use that up and down (see saw) voice that so many people turn on when in front of a mic. Thanks

  • I want this model!

  • its nuclear powered which is about time. cant rely on those solar panels and batteries.

  • why didn't they put a fan on the arm do blow off the dust on the solar panels? ?

    • I asked about that above. Why no windshield wiper-brushes for the solar panels and camera lenses? At least it wasn't mentioned. Those things would be relatively simple compared with all the rest. And what if it turns over? Is there a self righting mechanism? What if it sinks in sand? I sthere some mechanism for it to dig itself out?

    • it is nuclear powered

    • My guess is: because increased mass, low density atmosphere on Mars making the fans ineffective... It might be possible to add piezoelectric ”shakers” below the panels to jiggle the dust loose... But, the smarter solution is the MMRTG , replacing the panels with a couple of kgs of plutonium...

  • Is the perseverance rover programed will the AI machine learning we have now?

    • I think something to do with the cameras uses ML. For autonomous navigation, I would guess.

  • Me too! I am 68!

  • They should have sent some machine or a robot to plant something which can help provide oxygen

    • @Fred Flintstone Not to mention the lack of water...

    • Mars’s temperature and massive solar radiation, would be a big problem for plant life. Good idea though...

  • Great work Carol!

  • Woowwwwwwwwwwwwww👏👏👏👏👏👍🏻go nasa

  • Carbon dioxide is what living plants breaths, and exhales oxygen. So, if Mars is 96% Carbon Dioxide, plants can breath and creates oxygen for animals. The only element we need is hydrogen to produce water. Easy to say than done, but the basic chemical element is already present in Mars. I have faith and belief that Mars will be populated with people, animals, and plants in the future, may not be in our lifetime, but for our future generations.

    • Plus soil, and protection the elements. Plants aren't that simple

    • There are a lot of other problems to solve such as the lack of a protective atmospheric shield keeping the atmosphere 'stuck' to the planet.

  • We need to take care of mother earth where humans live comfortably. We can breath fresh air and eat from growing food. We have everything here, we just need to take of it. Mother earth is beautiful

  • Such a cool video! One day I sure we will have humans on Mars. I wont be here to witness it, unless we can pull it off soon. Im 60 y/o . We are so fortunate to have intelligent scientists who dont give up. Perseverance was THE BEST name, the scientists at NASA Jet Prepulsion labs could have named it. 🪐🔭📡🚀🛰

    • @Carol Meier Narrator - revoeciov The names are ???🤔 Well??🤔 Put a big smile on my face! 😁 Perfect and very thoughtful👍 Hey, " perfect and very thoughtful", could be the name of the next explorers!? Lol

    • Actually the naming of the Mars 2020 rover was opened not to the general public but to school aged students. That’s how Sojourner, Spirit, and Opportunity were chosen too. After the nation-wide contest a panel made up of 4700 volunteer judges, educators, professionals, and space enthusiasts reviewed the entries and narrowed the field down to 155 entries. After that field was narrowed down to 9 entries. The public then had 5 days to weigh in on their favorites. Those results were then submitted to NASA to make the final decision on the name.

  • imagine if perserverance comes across the other robot bodies v_v Also! when humans go to mars, imagine we step foot on mars, and we find the other robot bodies, :( I would hug the damn things, they're part of the reason we make it

  • I am 100% sure that man will land on Mars in 2050, hope I will be alive to see the miracle

  • Wish I was a young man again! I would volunteer for a one way mission to Mars in a heart beat. Plants for food, trees, water systems, or digging a cave to live in! Anything!

  • Science fiction becomes reality..Huge respect to all the scientists at JPL.NASA and other organizations..I’m guessing most are product of MIT??

  • just heard that it landed...excited

  • Great Voiceover and presentation. I do have something I would like to address. As a recording engineer, I am hearing some clipping in your voice... The best way to resolve that is to bring your channel gain down a little bit in your DAW. That will eliminate any unwanted clipping problems

  • Love it ! Thanks

  • This is so much better than the stupid politics in America

  • This is a great mission for the entire humanity. Our human race looks forward to the day when we step on mars.

  • Brilliant information for us all especially young people, keep going NASA.

  • Perseverance landed on mars successfully 🙌🙌

  • I couldn't live there without plants and animals but would love to see others on it. Very nice video

  • Amazing!

  • There goes my flat Mars theory

  • I have to see a human step on Mars in my lifetime, i just freaking have to!!!

  • Just send people already

  • This was a very interesting video. The soundtrack was really impressive! I thought that I was watching Ben-Hur! Can I make a request? Can you PLEASE move your tags from the bottom center of the film because it's impossible to read any text that is part of the video from whomever the imagery is from. For example, I could not see the text printed at the bottom of the rover part description. I would have liked to see those! Can you please move them into one of the corners? I understand your wanting to credit your own page, but when it's detrimental to the story or video, it gives me more of a reason to watch this information from your competitors. Thank you.

  • I don’t see any solar panels on this probe. What is its power source??

    • @Carol Meier Narrator - revoeciov That’s awesome! Thank you. So the only powers the probe for two years?

    • Multimission Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (MMRTG). This will give you an explanation of how that works. Same as Curiosity. isprofile.info/pac/qnlof56CnIXbqI8/v-deo.html

  • What happens to the Sky Crane? does it just flies away and crashes uselessly, or does it soft-lands and has usable sensors/cameras microphones/radio (relay), etc?

    • I think, just crash far away, no use for it anymore!

  • Human kind at its best! Minds from around the world compounding.

  • Very informative video !

  • Hi carol that was an awesome video of what is happening with the planet Mars the next few years are going to be awesome keep the good work 🚀🇬🇧❤️👍David

  • I truly hope I'll live to see the first manned mission land on Mars! In modern day routine and stupidity, things like this remind us what remarkable feats we can accomplish when we put our minds to it.

  • No color photos from the new rover?

    • Yes color cameras installed

    • Look at NASA's web-site. It's there.

    • It not fully loaded you have to wait but they do send a new picture on news

    • ya

  • Without a magnetic field to filter out deadly radiation it will be impossible to habitat Mars.

    • I think it's possible to block radiation with the Mars soil. A lot of propositions for Mars habitats involve "Mars bricks" surrounding the outside of the habitats, bricks 3D printed from processed Martian soil

    • Probably, have to live underground or build habitats covered with dirt! Caves on Mars a cheap solution too!

  • This is fascinating. So glad I'm still alive to experience a landing on Mars, if even only on TV or ISprofile...lol

  • How exciting!

  • We should start a pool on how many miles it runs for and how long it keeps on ticking .

  • I hope that every piece of equipment will work as expected.

  • Incredibly beautiful

  • A huge achievement for America - bravo.

  • Omg I can’t wait for the helicopter to take off what a great time to be alive!

  • I hope the USA 🇺🇸 puts a man on Mars before the Chinese do

    • We probably will. China isn't even caught up with us on the Moon yet

  • Well done, USA.

  • Amazing landed

  • Thank u all very much .

  • It was landed successfully!
