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.

Hello Real Engineering, You guys designed rovers and why not design a AI Robot that looks like a human so we would have a hands on you could build a some of the body part as a solar panel if possible so it can have the energy and you can have something to close it so no dust can get in

Don't get me wrong, I LIKE this tech story. mind always goes back to those gravity-defying craft we saw captured on video by US Navy fighter jet gun cameras!!! My conspiracy theory is this...what IF humans have that anti-gravity tech in hand...but feel SO compelled to keep it a secret that every now and then they put on a show about ordinary tech...such as keep us in the dark about what they can REALLY do!!!

mark my words .. this rover will get stuck in dust in no time with those wheels .. to drive on sand you must have soft enclosed tires "deflated tires on earth" .. open sides and hard tires are just asking to dig in .. maybe the rover is light , maybe mars gravity is weak .. still this is wrong .. also there is no mechanism to get out if it gets stuck .. in desert you use a plank of wood under wheel .. such a system could be added for 2 dollars .. yet there is none .
أمادو 12 minuter sedan
@Narke what does that mean ? .. previous rovers got stuck repeatedly and some wheels broke totally while the others broke bit by bit until both rovers got stuck in sand turning into stationary observers .. this rover will do the same as they didnt change the core concept of wheels .
Narke 36 minuter sedan
than why did all rovers together stuck 2 times and one managed to get unstuck?

The roadmaps that NASA has planned ahead made goosebumps on me. The first impressive task is (a) to test the O2 making device, (b) to shoot a much bigger device up to make O2 and store the O2 in a tank, (c) to send humans there to use those O2 stored. My mind is blown away. It will basically store enough O2 for human missions. The second impressive task is (a) to send another rover, (b) to collect the samples that Perseverance is going to be left on the Mars surface, then (c) to send them back with a rocket launched from Mars. My mind is blown away again. It will test the round trip and prepare it for future human operations. Clearly, human landing on Mars is a matter of time. Compare to those, autonomous driving on Mars seems less impressive. :-) Anyway, Perseverance is loaded with the high techs on earth. Kudos to these scientists, engineers, and project managers!
