In 2020, NASA will send a new rover to the Martian surface with one of its objectives to search for evidence of ancient life on the planet. I made this clip as a correspondent for Bill Nye Saves the World on Netflix.
Touring the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in Pasadena was an awesome experience. I didn't think we were going to get into the control room but we got lucky. Some of the greatest moments in the history of space exploration have taken place there. They have a giant vacuum chamber where they can take the rover down to the atmospheric pressure on Mars (roughly .01x Earth's atmosphere) and test all of the devices to make sure there are no electrical discharges due to the reduced pressure. I also enjoyed seeing how the rocks will be cored and stored in tubes and deposited on the Martian surface awaiting pickup by the following mission.

Lately I'm feeling down about all this mars exploration thing. If all the countries are making their own high risk high investment missions to mars then consequently they will want to keep tight control on whatever success they achieve on that alien planet. And you know where does it lead to... The same things we have been doing on "this planet". Yes, territorial, racial, cultural discriminations. And what that leads to... Just skim the human history. Initially I was hoping that world might UNITE to tackle down the Martian endeavors but now I see everyone is going their own ways.

Sad, right? I really wish humanity united to do these missions. But do you think we are? in some places? Hopefully things will get better after this pandemic. Let's hope for the best.

Leaving neatly packaged samples "all over" Mars waiting for a sample return mission is an interesting plan to try and convince ignorant politicians to give them the budget to DO that sample return mission. But with ignorance amongst politicians becoming more and more fashionable it's going to be "interesting" trying to get that budget.

There is ABSOLUTELY no life on Mars. The MARS mission is a scam tax payers money for missions that will never yield anything productive. This is such nonsense.. If you want to see rock formation, go to the Nevada desert. These MORONS are all wasting time and tax payers money.

@Bond James Bond what does that do with finding other life? To quote Mark Rober "Why explore outside our cave when we have so many problems inside the cave?" or "Why work on agriculture when we have so many problems with hunting and gathering?"

Also explain how it is a scam, NASA isnt spending it on lambroghini's, they are spending it on space missions and mars missions. Life could exist, if life does exist that may be true that life could be under the ice sheets of europa.

Because they have very limited batteries, and more can also go wrong on mars. There are of course no highways on mars, and if you get stuck, there is no one to help you out.

rocks flown in from from mars will instantly become the most valuable substance in the history of humanity. a single grain of sand from mars could probably go for tens of millions.

@HadesApocalypse with the moon rocks they have, they could probably fund more than a few missions--if they ever sold them. But I think NASA being a gov't agency makes it so that they are public property and belong to every American? IDK either. If spacex ever brings back any rocks, they may be able to do this, but even spacex gets help from NASA and ESA so who knows who it would actually 'belong to'.

So the Perseverance Rover will tell us in many new and exciting ways that the planet is dead, the regolith is toxic to both plants and animals and there is no water or oxygen in amounts we could use. How about sending one of these Rovers to ‎Europa or Venus or even our own moon would be money better spent. I mean how many of these damn things are we going to land on Mars to tell us what we already know?

Europa is right in the middle of one of Jupiter's radiation belts. Equipment sent there have to be heavily shielded against radiation. This rover is not. Venus is even more hostile to life than mars, so big nope.

Well if there is life on mars, the life need energy leading to the need of food producers, which is other forms of energy to make food. If it is heat or light there can be comparisons made with surroundings during daylight and without daylight

I'm watching this video just 35 days before the launch of the Perseverance Rover mission, and I'm super excited! 2020 has been a crazy year given the coronavirus pandemic and the global economic recession, but it's also exciting for space exploration. Recently we got to see SpaceX launch their Crew Dragon capsule in collaboration with NASA, sending 2 American astronauts to the International Space Station on an American rocket for the first time since 2011, and the first time ever on a commercial rocket. And soon we're sending the Perserverence rover to Mars! What a wild time to be alive.

U know we r totally ignoring the possibility of another kind of "life" that could exist on Mars. When I say another kind of "life" I mean life that follows different rules than life here on Earth (Mars doesn't necessarily have the same resources Earth had when life was first starting to bloom, so assuming there is life on mars, it could've developed using whatever different resources it had). Well those are just some simple thoughts based on a simple understanding of biology.
