  1. 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.

  2. Our future life on Mars… a planet where with insane greenhouse gas filled atmosphere the temperature is about -80C ??? Well go there if you want… I like going outside without a space suit… also I wonder if the people who put lithium-ion batteries in the rover and the helicopter have considered what it would take to keep those at usable temperature… 😀

  3. All my school is showing us right now is a bunch of things of Disneyland so I just clicked on this video so I actually start learning online school sucks

  4. Wow I was so u aware the collective progression of manki d journey into the stars was all out you, well lesson learned then some youber that shows Nasa viseos it's about him not the achievements of thousands of people.

  5. What's really neat is my name is aboard that rover. To know that my name is engraved on something 350 million miles away on another planet is pretty cool. How many of you guys took part in that?

  6. 2020 US Exxon mobile build 10billion $ ethylene chemistry plant in southern China,hui zhou city. Pls save lung &air. don’t want to die of toxic air… lung cancer,same as Floyd: can’t breathe –

  7. Most Real Engineering videos are thrillingly over my head; this one was thrillingly digestible. I haven't seen everything on this channel yet but of the vids I've seen, this is by far my favourite.

  8. Morse code?? Lol what are they trying to travel back in time to reach the titanic..? haha. Imagine like 100 or 1,000 years from now. Mars is inhabited by humans, or a human-like species, they keep those fossilized footprints of Morse code akin to the same way humans have preserved hieroglyphics found in Pyramids in Egypt in the modern day.. Hahaha
