    This was a pretty extraordinary experience - thanks to NASA for inviting me! The Atlas V 541 rocket took off carrying the Perseverance rover and Ingenuity the Mars helicopter at 7:50 am July 30, 2020. They should arrive in about seven months on February 18, 2021

Lately, I had the same strange feeling when I was watching the Neowise comet...

This is special and all, which is great. And I mean no hate to NASA, but I have to say this. Later, Perseverance got "Too cold in the Earth's shadow" (https://www.businessinsider.in/science/space/news/nasa-mars-mission-spaceship-in-safe-mode-facing-technical-difficulties-but-agency-not-worried/articleshow/77276200.cms). Even though Perseverance will be fine, isn't this something spacecraft have to deal with all the time? Haven't NASA already proven to us that they can launch reliably with minimal problems? What exactly happened to let this slip through?

Veritasium can't get a mask with a metal band??? Come on now man, there is zero point of having a mask with those particles rushing in where the metal band should be.

Yes it is a miracle. NASA did something. If i was getting paid 20 billion dollars a year to do nothing i would have great Perseverance to. NASA should be ashamed, the only reason they got off their @ss, was cuz spaceX was about to bring their scam to everyone's attention. Thanks for the vid.

The part about realizing we're really on a rock hurtling through space really hit me because that's exactly how I felt watching the eclipse. Something about seeing the moon physically blocking the sun with my own eyes just made it all feel more "real" to me. The sun and moon weren't just abstract lights moving through the sky, but they along with the earth were very real objects moving through space. It was definitely the most awe-inspiring moment of my life.

I remember when I was on high school and we discussed about the solar system and galaxies, my teacher imposed a question that got me thinking. She asked why we, people want to explore more about space and other planets when we can't be 100% sure of what's inside Earth? No one has ever explored the entire ocean and there's still mysteries out there. On the other thought, I can't wait what amazing discoveries await for us on Mars!

Awesome, but not very exeptional for me because i used to live in Kourou in French Guiana where the Ariane 5 is launch. And almost every month i could be able to see from the windows of my house the rocket going up. x)

for some reason YouTube thinks that a person that I have been watching for a long time, watch every video until the end and not skipping one unless I make a mistake, is not worth showing in my home page, someone broke something I think.
