MARS like you’ve never seen it before…

NEWS JUNKIES -- CHECK OUT OUR BREAKING NEWS HOMEPAGE, UPDATED 18 HOURS PER DAY!


 

A world first. New footage from Mars rendered in 4K resolution.

 

The cameras on board the rovers were the height of technology when the respective missions launched. — ‘Why don’t we actually have live video from Mars?’

 

Although the cameras are high quality, the rate at which the rovers can send data back to earth is the biggest challenge. Curiosity can only send data directly back to earth at 32 kilo-bits per second.

 

Instead, when the rover can connect to the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, we get more favourable speeds of 2 Megabytes per second.

 

However, this link is only available for about 8 minutes each Sol, or Martian day.

 

As you would expect, sending HD video at these speeds would take a long long time. As nothing really moves on Mars, it makes more sense to take and send back images.

 

A 10-minute clip posted on YouTube features panoramic views of the Red Planet’s surface, including sweeping deserts, massive dunes, craggy outcroppings and cracked ground strewn with jagged rocks.

 

The video’s “journey across the surface of another world” was posted by Britain’s ElderFox Documentaries, which said it was created using digital photos shot by three NASA rovers — Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity — and beamed back to Earth.

 

They were then “stitched together” to create the illusion of a camera panning across the desolate and barren landscape — and provide what the narrator calls the “most lifelike experience of being on Mars.”

 

The locations featured in the video bear names that include Cape Verde, Santa Maria Crater, Burns Cliff and Marathon Valley Entrance.

Yiddishlion, the atmosphere was stripped away in some prior event long ago and we see the results. Would be interesting to know what that event was. That is what is being withheld from the public.

If only we had as much concern for our own planet, Hey ? Kinda like fretting on white privelege as Chiraq self destructs daily kind of thinking ? What is real and what is the illusion ?

Could have also been that we simply didn’t need the extra space anymore once death/sin entered the world, so Mars got toasted.

If these vids do not have blue skies, THEN THEY ARE FAKE!

Mars has blue skies for real.

I know that for a fact.

The vid said that the Martian skies are reddish and hazy. B*LLSH*T. Hazy, yes, reddish, NO.

The Martian skies are hazy and BLUE.

And I can say a WHOLE LOT more about Mars, but then most of you would think of me as a little green man from Mars.

Google this: ” Secret Space Program David Wilcock .”

I personally know David and he’s the real deal. His information about the SSP is Martian-rock-solid.

We should have already been there. Humanity waste so much of their time and resources on useless crap..
Dr. Robert Zubrin may at times seem a little unhinged but had America followed his plan we could have already made the trip to mars.
Unfortunately like every other facet of our lives it all comes down to power and money.. NASA is no different .. The powers to be simply could not go along with something so rational as what Zubin was proposing.

Actually, after the Apollo missions, NASA’s next goal was a reusable vehicle (the space shuttle) that would take humans to what is now the International Space Station and back. They have a budget believe it or not and Mars wasn’t technologically doable at the time (and still won’t be for the foreseeable future.

Anti-matter propulsion would take a rocket to Mars at a confortable 1G propulsion in just 1 day….And it would also supply energy for a coil to generate a magnetic field around the rocket to protect humans from radiation…. The tricky part is just discovering a way to convert normal Hydrogen into anti-hydrogen

Ok… if we can get this kind of photo quality and the next rover will be able to send samples back to earth… Why are we going to spend Billions of dollars and send people there on a probable one-way mission? I’m all for science and all that… always have been, but the U.S.A. doesn’t have the money for this especially since the present crisis we are facing. Just sayin’ Any thoughts on this?

Many geological features (craters, volcanos, canyons, mountains, etc.) on Mars are named after places on Earth. Thus that huge barren area of sand on Mars is called Rub Al Khali.

Devon Island. . . er. . . Mars. . . located north of Canada. Look it up on google maps. The only thing missing are photos of the NASA encampment otherwise Devon Island is uninhabited. . . except for lemmings which have been captured in previous NASA “Mars” photos, as well as drift wood and whale bones. I don’t think they noticed those images before publishing them.
