    I applaud them. Probably grew up as children looking up to the stars and dreaming. Life on an alien world in our solar system. Yet many alienate life on our own world in each other. Mankind.The day the military starts policing space, is the day we are doomed. Voyages, 1970's. Greetings from earth. Greetings from the children of earth. We are a peaceful intelligent race that wish nothing more than to communicate. Just don't invade our airspace. We will shoot you down or chase you. Beam me up Scotty. There's no intelligent life down here

    It's extremely unlikely that this has happened. Spacecraft was traveling at 24,000 MPH. Atmosphere is almost nonexistent (maximum density at surface is less than 1% of Earth's), and is only about 100 km. Time in the atmosphere would be miliseconds, maybe a couple of seconds if traveling parallel to surface, which is not realistic due to Mars' curvature. Just not buying that crap. The cartoons are nice, though, good job.

  92. heberildo

    heberildo11 dögum síðan

    @John Miller the reported average speed is ~24000 mph. then it will slow down to 12000 mph. You would need to shoot fire from more than 300 gallons of jet fuel in the direction of travel, which is like spitting upward. And that is just for the mass of the rover. I can't even find the mass of the drone with the thrusters, or the heat shield. It would be easily 3 times the mass, 3 times the energy, ~1000 gallons, not even counting the mass of the rocket. Plus the fuel needed to make adjustments in the direction. And then how is it supposed to get back to earth? do they have another cape canaveral installed in mars? Not a chance. And there is no solid evidence provided, only animations, and pictures of a desert.
