New: Mars In 4K

Birt 17 júl 2020
A world first. New footage from Mars rendered in stunning 4K resolution. We also talk about the cameras on board the Martian rovers and how we made the video.
The cameras on board the rovers were the height of technology when the respective missions launched.
A question often asked is:
‘Why don’t we actually have live video from Mars?’
Although the cameras are high quality, the rate at which the rovers can send data back to earth is the biggest challenge. Curiosity can only send data directly back to earth at 32 kilo-bits per second.
Instead, when the rover can connect to the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, we get more favourable speeds of 2 Megabytes per second.
However, this link is only available for about 8 minutes each Sol, or Martian day.
As you would expect, sending HD video at these speeds would take a long long time. As nothing really moves on Mars, it makes more sense to take and send back images.

  • Part 2 OUT NOW!: Please note: We are not affiliated with NASA in any way. All image credit goes to NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS/Cornell/ASU. Taking a look at the merchandise above is the best way to support the channel! P.S: Sorry about the font change halfway through. My rendering software decided to forget a font after almost a week of failed renders. This video was almost not made due to my struggling PC. Correction: Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Not Renaissance. Misread. Correction: 8 Megabits per second, not Megabytes.

    • This footage was shot on Earth; space is science fact, but *space TRAVEL* is as science fiction as _Star Wars_ is.


    • 123

    • Credit for what ? No credit is due to yourselves or NASA.

    • funny cuz 4k isnt a real thing but ok 😂

  • Hmmm they can’t get cellphone coverage in all of the USA and yet we get pictures from Mars ? 🤔

  • Wtf that looks like old ground water

  • Don’t be the person who say food and water that’s obviously a necessity

  • I could live on Mars if I have my drums and a lot of single player games

  • I have an idea I want to give scientists so they can get data back from Mars quicker

  • Bruhh perservearence gonna do like dat 8k shit

  • I am speechless

  • There was once life on here just like earth

  • إذا شفت المريخ أكثر من مليون مرة يعني إيش 😎

  • Earth looks like Mars and Mars looks like Earth kinda scary this is all we get Make the most of your life find joy and peace within

  • Looks to me like the Papoose Mtn's where S4 is located In Nevada...What now? OMG! look! it's a flying disc! Duh! That's area 51 Bob Lazar told us about.

  • Who knew we would be the Extra Terrestrials. My Grandson told me his teacher told him there are not Aliens they don't exist. "Is that true Grandpa?" I told him, " no, she's a liar. We have landed equipment on Mars. We are the Aliens and we exist".

  • Dude dont spread fake images..I've been there n number of times..its nothing like this there

  • Can you please shut up? let us enjoy this journey. thanks

  • anyone know music at 7:20 ?

  • Mars is not a good place... *takes sunglasses off* plant trees...

  • Imagine one day Curiosity caught an image of a castle at the mars

  • Very nice planets

  • This is just Arizona ..... We all know the earth is flat

  • 🎥

  • So if I make a video on my bathroom I will text - THE TOILET 🚽 AND THE TOILET PAPER 🧻 WERE NOT HARMED DURING THIS VIDEO 🎥🤔

  • “The team at NASA has given mars informal place names such as Butthole Canyon and Nut Sack Ridge.”

  • Does anyone know what's the soundtrack from 0:00 to 3:40? I find it super relaxing and peaceful!

  • Looks like johnny number 5

  • A nice and interesting video.

  • Woo. Good luck further research for China. I hope It is not national security threat to US 🤣🤣🤣

  • Where are the aliens👽

    • I've hidden my friends and saved them from you cruel humans

  • Wow, imagine hostel in mars

  • How do I set 4k? I have iPhone SE 2020 it has 4k..

  • look like so scary I mean alone

  • Looks like Southern California

    • No it doesn't though, does it. I've lived in California and looks nothing like this.

  • Now we have Lives from the red planet! Mars

  • Это же After Effect и Cinema 4D. Всё наглая беспринципная Ложь! Графика совмещённая с местами на земле.

  • Eerily beautiful.... I'm going.

  • I'm genuinely amazed seeing this. Who else does?

  • but does anyone ask why are all those views are so short distance?

    • They aren't though, are they?

  • Curiosity reminds me of Wall-E. A lonely robot.

  • I use this to sleep

  • Так запускали не этот марсоход ))) 2 пикселя на этом )

  • the rover´s connection is faster than my interenet

  • Wow, awesome. I want to go there

  • A planet without social media..

  • *This rover has the makings of a varsity athlete.*

  • The tracks of the rover were the first thing to upset that soil in such a long time. If you dig, you only find rock, if you walk, you only find land. Not a soul, or structure, or sign of disturbance as far as can be seen. Utter, eternal, calm. It's almost like Limbo.

  • هل في عربي؟

  • It's sahara dessert not mars

  • 😥🤕

  • Looks like the Nevada desert around area 51🤔

  • This is all fake! Don't believe any of this crap. Man never went to the moon. FAKE NEWS!!

  • The earth is flat.

  • 100% fake video

  • غباء

  • A moment of silence for the people who believe this

  • New Planet To Destroy 😂

  • Earth is 10000 times better than mars for us

  • My dream to go on Mars 🌟✌️😗

  • Wow... there really is absolutely nothing on mars

  • So they don’t even bother to add the red filter any more?

  • Enjoying the sight of desert on earth? Yeah it's beautiful.. but this is not on a planet called mars. This is what the freemasons wants you to believe in lol.. dear brainwashed people, you can call me What ever you want, I'll just laugh at your comments. Nasa = To Deceive

    • Why are you lying?

  • Can we get a third, fourth, and even a fifth verse on this?

  • I just want to see creatures man. I hope they exist imagine seeing new creatures walking there while the camera recording.

    • Sadly mars atmosphere would not be able to harbour life as it has less than 1°/. Of oxygen on it

  • Wait, are these high quality 4k images?

    • This is ISprofile, but you can change this to 1080p.

  • i really wonder how is the nature sound in mars..... and is there any animal/plants exist there ? how can human survive without source of food there....? is it really empty? i hope i live long enough to witness it with my own eyes...

  • God's creation : Insanely beautiful yet insanely terrifying

    • Truly.. except that this is recorded in the desert on a planet called earth. You rly think we've landed on mars? Of course you do.. you're one of the brainwashed ones. Soon you'll find out the truth, this is just bullcrap that the freemasons wants you to believe.
