  • Yyyy

  • I love this. What troubles me is NASA’s refusal to release test video. Conspiracy theorists are thriving. Where is the goddam test video?

  • ini metode yg di pake perseverance buat landing..

  • Why? Why not just put the rockets on the rover?

  • Anyone else suddenly get this recommended after 8 years?

  • Poor crane, btw. being instructed to self destruct.

  • The acknowledgement of how we landed this year's later gives us a sense of pride as humans. Regardless of our borders.

  • Who would've thought that it's gonna be the method of perseverance landing

  • Oh my god 10 year before

  • fk when i looked at the mans face , i thought this must be a 10 year old video , but i was wrong its 8 years

  • Oh my goodness i just witness this insane engineering ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Really genius. Lesson ! don't underestimate any.

  • looks like a deployed terran SCV ready to mine minerals

  • After 8 years same video showed for perseverance

  • N Now it's reality

  • Here after it landed?

  • 2021 it became reality

  • this video is ctually for the curiosity rover, it worked so well, they usead again for the mars 2020 mission (perseverance)

  • wonder when will they send a human in mars in their next mission

  • Mr Blonde works for NASA now?

  • Finally they did it amazing ....

  • ...and look at 'em now. They did it. Twice. And even shot mind-blowing HD footage of the second entry and landing. Historic times we live in, yet these are only the first steps.

  • We don't stepping foot on Mars yet but we already throwing a trash there

  • Если на Марсе есть сильные ветры и пыльные Марсаход как дергыеться и как снимаеть и поподает толька томже територи Уже всех адманывайти все люди патцаны для вас Может насса работуюшии есть Инопланетяни настаяши литцо не показывают

  • Hello 2021

  • Wow, you guys did it!

  • They keep showing this video of the landing when it’s not even the new rover,

  • Fascinating

  • And now, the Reality

  • Did they have to blow the crane up???

  • im impressed...! nothing change with perseverance rover landing. and i believe ,nasa's suspects of the mars liquid water will be reality 😊

  • this is just a concept back in 2012, and this is a reality now in 2021

    • Reality since 2012 because Curiosity rover used that landing method

  • I've seen the other CGI videos about this system and the new video from the actual Perseverance landing but when I watched THIS video I said 'OW!' when it hit the surface. Never saw it shown as being that rough before!

  • love Nasa,s works

  • Totally false because there is no air to parasuit working

    • there is air. Not much at all. Thats why the parachute is so huge

    • your education system needs to catch up to the rest of the world

  • Sky crane, parachute, heat shield.... All gone, waste 😂

    • Those things are expendable.

    • @Graphy I meant that they're just litter on mars 😅

    • what would you use it for

  • Funny how the old comments say that these are impossible, fake and a waste of time and money but here we are in 2021, touchdown confirmed!

    • Just as funny is how many people say that since the scientists didnt do a complete test landing on Earth before sending it to Mars it wasnt fully tested

  • And 8 years after, it's on Mars.. It's amazing what these people have achieved. It's sad though, that we're making such efforts to discover other places to go to, instead of investing those incredible minds, money and time, in saving the Earth from ourselves.

    • @Julian Shin That’s a good observation. But even then, I consider that knowledge to be of lesser importance than the understanding of the incredibly intricate systems that sustain life on Earth, in order to better focus our efforts in sustainability in terms of energy and other finite resources.

    • It’s not about just “going to Mars.” It’s about having another planet to closely study and understand if we (earth-based life) are the standard for the universe or are we something truly unique???

  • Mate it matt damon Hollywood

  • I hope Sky Crane is okay. I love that guy

    • I don’t think he’s ok

    • 1:26

  • They did Yes it happened

    • @Michael Sanchez yes but it is more curious than curiosity

    • it happened again. Curiosity did it first

  • What's 'Elvis doing working for JPL?

  • Ingenious approach !! Thinking outside the box !!

  • Who's there after skycrane was a good boy and made the job?

  • What about the flying Crane?? Luks it crashed

  • What happened with the sky crane daddy???!!!

  • Lo primero que dejamos en Marte es basura .arrancamos bien

  • I never thought I'd see actual footage of the skycrane maneuver, then along came Perseverance.

  • bah voyons!!

  • Всё так и произошло

  • Sky crane then destructs itself weird...

  • Nó đã thành sự thật! 2021

  • ...and those crazy SOBs did it again!!

  • Who's here after Perseverance rover landed with this method? Genius!!!

    • Me

    • Me

    • @Carter Hoeck Whoa! Took roughly 15 minutes but it reallyworked!

    • @Carter Hoeck shut up

    • i dont know if anyone cares at all but in less than 15 minutes I hacked my girlfriends Instagram password using InstaPwn. Cant link here so search for it on google if you wanna try it yourself

  • Spoilers: *It worked*

  • "It looked weird, it looked scary, very crazy thing" Who would say 10 years later this is a reality, this is exactly how the perseverance rover landed.

    • @Ivan Martínez Yeah, it's still an amazing feat considering how much heavier percy was than Curiosity. Can't wait until they try out that helicopter.

    • @The Fictional Fox Yeap, I looked for information and youre darn right, never mind. Still a great time for this new rover

    • Looking at this video now I’m glad this already exists!

    • @Ivan MartínezNot sure if you're trolling but no, that was spirit and opportunity, the lighter less complicated rovers before curiosity. Curiosity landed via skycrane it's all over youtube to look it up.

    • @The Fictional Fox you were referring to opportunity?

  • Love this less than perfect, bumpy landing.

  • They did it!!

  • This landing is a feat of scientific and engineering genius. My hat's off to these people who worked so hard.

  • Can you guys imagine if we could see this happen closer?

  • it's not crazy when it works

  • 2021 and this craziness is now tried, tested and proven yet again. Perseverance!

  • woah.. how long has the guy being waiting for till today?

    • His prep sure made a win.

  • All we had in 2012 was 360p

  • Why does this look crazy? Looks great

  • Is sky crane really just gonna crash into the ground

    • Lol yeah guess it's as disposable as a used needle after it lands the rover

    • yeah. There’s really no other use for it

  • Does the sky crane crash land elsewhere? Or did it fly off to do another job?

    • It flies off as far away as possible and crashes

  • And today we landed! 18/02/2021

    • @Matt S yup. Also China and UAE landed this month too. It’s not NASA only.

    • 2nd time. Seems to be a misconception in the comments. Skycrane landed Curiosity successfully first.

  • Here like everyone else to say... IT WORKED haha

  • It's works! Hello from 2021 :)

    • Ok 👌🏼 thank you! I will let everybody know here at NASA! They’re going to be over the moon, “pun intended”

    • Yup, it is

  • They just did this. Amazing. It took 9 years but congrats

    • This was used on Curiosity. They upgraded for Perseverance. Pretty impressive Tech I must say.

  • Well it worked

  • ;

  • The Sky Crane is probably one of the most ingenious methods of landing a spacecraft I’ve ever seen. It’s so unique and cool. Can’t wait to see the Perseverance rover land using it!

  • Congratulations to Curiosity for 3000 days on Mars!

  • 👍👍you guys rock!!

  • It seems very complicated just to land a rover. Why would you want thrusters firing just above a $2.4 billion car? Did they ever test the crane rockets on Earth? Where could we see that, as the real thing would be much more interesting.

    • I doubt the crane could fly on earth, but the Perserverence rover will have cameras recording video of the process. Besides, is having the rockets hovering above the car really that different then having the rockets on bottom of the car?

  • Amazing!

  • Fun fact: Mark Rober take part on making the sky crane.

  • 1:20-1:26 RUNNING IT DOWN MID

  • 2:27 ksp players pain

  • wow ksp 2.0 looks good

  • Wow. Just. Wow.

  • Come on NatGeo... 360p?

  • Who's ready to rove!
