The video was from Curiosity and someone added sound effects.


I sure hope the video from Perseverance is oriented correctly.  Can you imagine putting the phone in the robot's hand vertically instead of horizontally?  'You had one job' comes to mind :D

Mars Is a Hellhole  :wave: 

Colonizing the red planet is a ridiculous way to help humanity.

History has demonstrated over and over again that true explorers don't fear the unknown ... in fact they embrace it.

The author of the article is obviously satisfied with her morning Starbucks, 9 to 5 job, her cat, and a warm bed to sleep in at night.

Thankfully, there are plenty of folks for whom that hasn't ever been good enough ... and thankfully it's those folks who have historically charted the course for humanity.


The author of the article can crawl back into her bed ... nobody cares what she says or does ... Elon Musk (on the other hand) is busy every day - changing the world.


Underlying everything of course ... is the fact that we'll eventually have to leave this place ... as the Sun goes supernova and Earth turns to ash.

Better to start laying the groundwork for space travel now ... one day in the distant future your grandchild 3000 times removed might thank you!
