    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

    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!
