Mars InSight will be the first to detect seismic activity on Mars’ surface, first to measure rate of heat transmitted from interior, first to dig nearly 5m down, first to measure magnetic fields on Mars’ surface, and first to use a robotic arm to place instruments on the surface of Mars (assuming it lands of course…)
If you want to watch the InSight landing “live” (with 4-minute speed of light time delay), go to:

Too late for this comment, but it's still called "earthquake", simply because it's "earth" (material) that is shaking (simplification, don't trow me stones plz), not "Earth" (celestial body) that is shaking

Informative Video, I liked it as always! What bugged me a bit: "We really don't know, otherwise what would be the point of the experiment." Expected or not, either way it would clarify it, that's one of the things science does after all.

Is Mars geologically active? Is there a liquid core of Mars? I guess we'll find out soon. 5 meters is not very far to dig, after all, there's even basements on Earth deeper than five meters underground, but on Mars, we've gotta start somewhere! This is fixing to be the first robotic mission to Mars that will examine not the surface of the planet, but below the surface of Mars! If we're going to find more conclusive evidence of living things on Mars, that evidence is likely underground!

Mirozen År sedan
@Funk Obama If they are on a par with that link you provided then I'm not worried I've missed anything by not seeing them. If you're serious about being able to detect when people have in ignorance posted "proofs" like the video in that link then I do think you should do some research on how modern video data stream work. It's fascinating information in it's own right, and it will let you see that you've just been misinformed. Don't blindly accept those videos that think that they're showing "proof" like that in that link you sent me! Knowledge about the technology is all you need to realize the mistakes the're making. I know we're not going to agree on this unless you eventually do as I've suggested because you've been taking their criticisms at face value not realizing that they were ignorant regarding what they were criticizing! I've decades of programming and computer science experience behind me to prevent my being taken in by what they've posted. It's not your fault that you believe what they've posted as it's not your area of expertise. Do that research and you'll change your mind! Whether you do so or not, best of luck, and may 2019 be a great year for you!

Mirozen År sedan
@Funk Obama You're right that I don't know your computer skills. I don't doubt you are competent as a user. But if you misinterpret what you see in that video link you sent me the way its creators did then you either don't understand how video compression and data streams work or you are ignoring the fact that the guys making that video didn't know what they were doing! I mean it's obvious - especially if you write computer code and are not just a computer user, as most people are. Learn how the technology that made those videos works - that video was embarrassing for those who posted it as all it did was show their ignorance. If you believe their take on it then you haven't done your due diligence in evaluating it.

A bit too much wind and the robot tilt ? Over. Hit a rock ? Over. A plan B in case something bad happen ? No, we need to show when we scratch our heads solving this "unexpected problem" in the next movie !

Hey Derek. I have a few questions in wave theory. Can you please make a video about them.1) If microwave oven waves are lower frequency than light , how they are able to cook. 2) If 5G waves cannot travel great distances how light waves can able to reach Earth from far far distances. what is exactly this relations between the frequency , wavelength, travelling distance and the damage a wave can cause to human body or to other species. I am hearing this news that 5G can kill birds. I just want to the know the truth and possibilities. I asked saying question in smarter every day. Hope one of you will make a video about.

Hey @Veritasium and @members, please watch or at least skip through this presentation of Safire Project. Tell me what you think about it. I think it's a leap for kosmology!!
entimonGER 2 år sedan
@b1aflatoxin thank you for your reply! I'm relating to your second link, because I find the first one insulting and highly unscientific.. - "Testing the electric Universe" basically starts with the question: Q) Why doesn't EU-Theory predict neutrinos? a) The EU-Theory with the electric sun hypothesis does also expect neutrinos from the sun. The SAFIRE experiment sadly can't measure neutrinos, but they found evidence of nucleosynthesis(!), also of havier elements ( In this process nutrinos are expected. -> no problem with observation. I'd like to add that standart model can't find around 70% of the predicted amount of neutrinos. Q) Sun has thermal emissions not a plasma one. Why doesn't EU predict this? a) Is there a difference? Plasma discharge is very variable. It goes from glowmode to arc lightning. Blackbody radiation suits the plasma curve along with the Herzsprung-Russell diagram (tho you have to rotate it by 90°). Thermal emissions are produced by particles in motion. So it's expected by the EU-Model. And reproduced by SAFIRE. Q) GRT/SRT (Einstein's relativistics) in EU Model? a) Well it's tough to say, but yes Einstein was wrong. Not his great observations nor his photoeffect, but his idea of curvage of space&time. He discribed it well also mathematically, but the mechanism being gravity and it's curvage of space is simply wrong. Gravity is a byproduct of EM and dipole. I dont want to get into it.. beyond the skope. In the presentation that plasma double layers changed the speed of light. Q) Planetary formation is better discribed in standart model? a) Simply: it's not. Computer simulations fail to produce a solar system unless dark matter as a mechanism is introduced. This doesn't account for the setting up of the planets nor any moons. In EU-theory stars and planets are produced by an effect called z-pinch. It's well discribed and observed in labratories. Question remains, if the effect is scalable to stelar or even galactic scale. Sorry for the long answer. I tried my best to show that not even "a simple thing like a star" (arthur eddington), is fully understood. Facts are the predictions coming from EU-Theorists are superior to those of the standart model. Dont get me started on soft spots of standard kosmology. Cheers
b1aflatoxin 2 år sedan
Electric Universe isn't taken seriously. Any science minded person who takes a look at EU quickly finds a -theory- postulation devoid of any meaningful math and physics. It's just science fiction like Dianetics, or Nibiru. People like EU because it's so easy to understand, ...again, because it has no maths or formula, and it makes people feel special and separate from the mainstream; similar to feeling experienced by 'woke' conspiracy followers. - I'm not trying to sound elitist or demeaning. I can appreciate your passion for discovery. :)

Dr. Derek Muller, I had some questions regarding my career. I'm from, India, currents completing my 12th Year of High School, after which I'll be getting into a Undergraduate Course. I'm generally good at Science, especially in Computer Science and Mathematics, and watching your videos has made me really interested in Physics too(Quantum Mech). They way I see it, getting into Quantum Computing is my Goal. Unfortunately, I am not sure how I procure Expertise in Quantum Computing. Are there any degrees available which might help me get an expertise in Quantum Computing and Build them? What undergraduate degrees and post graduate degrees should I achieve in order to Specialize in Quantum Computing?
Robin Maurya

From India too bro. First choose an undergrad degree and I would recommend B.Sc for u cause of your interest but doing Computer Engineering B.Tech is fine too and it has a larger scope. Then go ahead with your masters which should be research oriented in quantum computers but to be honest, you have MUCH time to think about that. Just focus on your bachelors and take in other people's opinions over time for your post grad. Hope I helped somehow. (PS. I'm currently perusing B.Tech Computer Eng. From NIT)

Hi, i had a question the answer of which i could not find anywhere. Actually.. try googling it... It's not there. When I eat a few pepermints or menthol flavored things (candy etc) my scalp starts to sweat. Why? I do not have hyperthyroidism nor do i take any medication. This weird sweating is only when i eat mints. My guess is that it somehow triggers a certain hormone or that it fools my temperature receptors into doing something weird. But like i said, i found no research or information on this weird thing at all. Maybe a fun one to look into?

Holy crap I just went to that link in the description and watched a liveFeed from NASA telling us that we're going to the moon and we're gonna use it's resources and that we might even have a human presence on the moon by the end of 10 years. And... OMG.... NASA plans on cooperating with other "commercial entities" nationwide and internationally. Also I missed that lnSight landing. I'm 3 days late. But right now I'm totally okay with that.

hmm, marsquakes might be very infrequent and we don't exactly know where a meteorite hit the ground, because we have no network of seismometers up there. We should set off (nuclear?) explosions at given postitions, that will lead to much more reliable data and ease the evaluation and interpretation. NASA, if you read this, please cite me! :P
