  • I hope this is real and not like apolo 11

  • Os satelites mal conseguem fazer transmisssoes pra terra mesmo,imagina com mais de 150 milhoes de distancia .

  • Qual deserto mesmo?

  • ischats.info/fun/adt8hKuIpaeDn4w/v-deo

  • Fake

  • NOW HEAR THIS EARTHLY INHABITANTS!!! This is the official last of all warnings & messages for this earthly realm & all it's inhabitants as adolescence has long past for this latter era of the last generation. The karmic court & its patience has been replaced by divine judgement as responsibilities have come to take you. The truth has long been foretold to come to light in the time of the last generation which lives now, yet still remains the fading, breaking, thinning veil as a massive collaborate last ditch effort by the ruling class & all the guilty association's which celebrities & politicians make up the highest percentage of as well as having the most important role to play while maintaining the inevitable failing grip to the last stubborn finger. Tho it may seem this message is directed only at this evil amalgamation of individuals involved in the deceptions over earthly inhabitants, it is not. Now is the time to pray and repent. Do not delay any longer.This message is for all the sinners of earth, but sights have been specifically placed on these deceivers & their crimes motivated by evil far beyond anything humanity would ever imagine.The fate of the guilty has already been decided & the judgement is no longer coming cuz it is upon you ready & now waiting like a gavel in the air ready to slam down & carry out the already chosen inescapable specific punishment of each individual sentence without mercy, yet a single final chance exist for mercy hangs over the eternal fate of the guilty which can only be received by the individual choice to expose every lie they know of and which they participated in as well as every crime they know of and participated in that directly caused physical harm or death onto others wether known of, watched, or took part in while in the presence of no other person or support towards your irrevocable announcment to the world every over played deception which still exist in the majority public's forced fabricated reality against the command that it shall come to pass when the veil shall dissapate & truth shall come to light for all in the last generation to know. Judgement is done, yet the severity is what hangs in the balance during the suspended animation of time before the gavel strikes the final blow to your eternal fate. Inaction is a choice the same as action. Make no mistake of thinking you have time to think or seek counsel. In the last age, This is the divine judgement of fate.

  • It’s amazing that people believe this nonsense. All fake and staged!!!

    • @Barrington Gee again, I don’t care who watches my channel or how many subscribers I have. Honestly could not care less. Still waiting for your evidence.

    • @Dirkardo StEvergreen People watch him because he’s informative and doesn’t accept whatever the lame stream media convey’s. No one watches your BS channel.

    • @Barrington Gee he’s an absolute moron, as is anyone who thinks he makes sense. As for how many subscribers I’ve got, I couldn’t care less. Still waiting for your evidence that proves this is fake.

    • @Dirkardo StEvergreen You have 16 subscribers. I have 9 subscribers and I don’t do videos. 😂. Get off ISchats, you’re a 🤡

    • @Dirkardo StEvergreen His videos make more logical sense than your BS channel. Nobody watches that nonsense. Look at the UN Flag. They have a picture of the flat earth on it. Ignorance is bliss and you’re a shill.

  • Just curious, but is this narrated after the landing? if not how did they do it real time with no delay?

    • The audio you hear was narrated live as the information was received on Earth, while those actual events happened about 11 minutes before. The videos that have been made since then sync up audio with the video (removing the 11 minute delay).

  • What we have achieved as human on this planet and beyond, is way greater than God's thoughts.

  • Mars topography.....smoothe milk chocolate covering a deliscious caramel and fudge centre

  • Tango f****g Delta!!

  • It's kinda strange hearing a little high squeaky voice announcing all this, lol.

  • A moment of silence for the brave cameraman who took this footage.

    • @Ethan C nah nah nah, that joke only works for animations. Y’all just don’t know how to use the joke

    • @Jonathan Meza r/whoosh

    • no camera man, the cameras were installed on the rover

  • I still want to sign up to go to Mars.

  • Something I thought of is: what if the sample tubes fell off and there was a windstorm. I saw a Nova show last night with a thing called ‘Fetch’ yes it could track it but a windstorm could blow the samples away and you wouldn’t get them because it would be maybe fat in the air or just out of range of the rover.

    • The Martian air likely isn't dense enough to blow away those samples, even with pretty high winds.

    • Far*

  • Oh my word!They went to Mars!It”s touch down,allright!It reminds you of the Moon landing in 1969(July of that year!).

  • Imagine going to Makemake one of the dwarf planet. I took 2 years just to get to Mars!!

  • Who tf is thumbing down on space

  • Mars has no atmosphere so what acted on the parachute?

    • Your question was based on the false assumption that Mars has no atmosphere). Mars does have an atmosphere - it's quite thin (about 1% as dense on the surface as Earth's), but it's certainly there, and when you're going through even a thin atmosphere at 14,000 MPH (the speed of the rover as it deployed the parachute) you'll certainly hit enough molecules to catch a parachute.

  • How about the fact that the wheels were hollow and collected grit inside..? with no parabolic or curved vanes to push the grit out as it drives... Will it be able to move at all?

  • What desert is this Sahara, Libyan, Kalahari, Namib? 🤔

    • @Dirkardo StEvergreen brainwashing for the sheeple 🐑

    • @Fisher Steven My comment stands. If you can't give evidence for it being fake other than "it might be a desert on earth" that isn't a good reason to dump on the remarkable achievements of this team.

    • @Dirkardo StEvergreen and you know every square inch of every desert out there " Right " LMFAO 🤣

    • Yes it’s funny how all the people saying it’s fake can’t seem to make their minds up where it’s taken from. It’s almost as if they don’t actually have any evidence for their claim ...

  • I want moar videos of Mars.

  • The ancient james consequentially bubble because green chronologically stop following a snotty reduction. entertaining, deeply stone

  • CVU: para colaborar 0000007900204363431921

  • Lmao nice CGI

  • Look up some of Odd TVs flat earth vids, along with RV truth. Wake up!

  • Nasa: We’re gonna colonize the moon! Aliens after seeing what they already did to earth: 👁👄👁

  • C'mon guys!!?? Is really someone believing this??? Fake CGI is so obvious...for 52 million Dollars each DAY from the american tax-payers we should expect a better Movie🤡🤥🚀 A Parachute without atmosphere😂 NASA=LIARS Think for yourself please!!!

    • ​@Rico Last So you say you did the math yet you didnt show it and now you suddenly are gonna stop responding which leads me to believe you didn't do ANY math at all and you realize you were wrong and now your going to act like the higher one to make you sound like you were right. Alright buddy! Sorry you can't accept science.

    • @TimePro Calculate for yourself, lazy Mr.Time Pro! You're funny...you got no explanations for nothing but recommending...just keep on living in your Sci-Fi Dreamworld I will not answer again. Have a good Life🙏

    • @Rico Last Alright Mr. Math student, show me the math then!

    • @TimePro So, you really believe that a parachute can be used without practically no air resistance and at this level of speed...simple Mathematics tell you that IT IS IMPOSSIBLE!!! I'm a math student and calculated all the official statements and parameters from "NASA" sorry but your after spoken "arguments" are POINTLES. 7BTW did these Magicians explained how they made it through the Van Allen Belt??!!😂😂😂 It's just ridicolous to me🙊🙉🙈 but the so called "Space" is like a Religion they branded into your Mind through Movies, School and so on. Everyone can believe what they want..."May the Force be with you"

    • @Rico Last Yea. That 1% atmosphere is ENOUGH to use a parachute upon subsonic speeds since the rover is more lighter. And In the future, starship will use aerodynamic drag from mars atmosphere to slow down to conduct its landing burn. 1% doesn’t mean there’s no air. Also, NASAS BEEN Saying there's only 1% of the atmosphere on mars. Your "research" was pointless.

  • So the chute opens like there is air? What has allows the chute to float equipment down🤔

    • Yes, that's what parachutes do - Mars has an atmosphere. It's very thin compared to Earth's (about 1% as dense as Earth), enough that a parachute will help slow something down but will not finish the job, which is why they cut the parachute and finish the landing with rockets. Also know that the craft was going about 14,000 MPH when the parachute opened. In Earth's denser atmosphere, opening a parachute at that speed would just destroy the parachute (assuming the metallic craft itself hadn't burnt up by that point, that's REALLY fast), but in the ultra-thin Martian atmosphere there's much less air for the parachute to grab so it can survive that speed.

  • What if elon musk was the head alien and came to earth to help us find other life on other planets?

  • Brought to you by nvidia gtx 3090 x4..(not real)

  • O céu de Marte é azul ou estou vendo coisas?

  • ischats.info/fun/otejdISfiXKbkHg/v-deo

  • Weird, they said there was hardly any atmosphere, yet have a helicopter hovering around.

    • The little drone (Ingenuity) hasn't flown yet, probably sometime next month. The engineering behind the drone is pretty interesting - you are correct, the Martian atmosphere is extremely thin, so a given drone design that would work on Earth would not work on Mars. This is largely due to a drone's ability to generate lift - the ability of an airfoil (like a wing or helicopter blade) to generate lift is a function of several variables, most importantly 1) the surface area of the airfoil (bigger airfoils generate more lift than smaller airfoils), the speed the airfoil through the air (faster blades and faster wings generate more lift, and a fixed-wing aircraft generates more lift when going faster), the density of the air (wings generate more lift in dense air, on earth an airplane generates more lift at lower altitudes and less lift at higher altitudes), and 4) the angle of attack of the airfoil (the angle of the propeller or wing relative to its path through air - a higher angle generates more lift, to a point - too much will stall the wing). The one advantage Mars has over Earth is the decrease in gravity - the Ingenuity drone weighs about 4 lbs on Earth, but only about 1.5 lbs on Mars, so the propellers only need to generate a little over 1.5 lbs of lift to take off rather than 4 lbs. But that's as far as the bonuses go as the Martian atmosphere is only 1% as dense as Earth's at the surface, so a given drone drone design on Earth would only produce about 1% of the same lift on Mars, which is a huge decrease in lift generation, so a new design is needed. Referring to the lift-generation variables above, while we can't alter the density of the Martian atmosphere, we can alter the other lift-generation variables - size of the airfoil (propeller blade), speed of the airfoil (how fast the blades are spinning), and angle of attack of the blades. If you look at the design for the Ingenuity drone, you'll notice it looks goofy - it's nearly ALL blades. dronedj.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2021/02/NASAs-Ingenuity-Mars-drone.jpg?quality=82&strip=all&w=1600 And compare it to an Earth drone of an equivalent weight: shop.quadrocopter.com/assets/images/Mavic-2-Ent-Dual-Aircraft-Beacon16.jpg Notice the Ingenuity drone, compared to the Earth drone, has HUGE propellers (increased area) and also have a fairly large angle of attack. The Mars drone's blades will also spin at about 2500 RPM (very fast), nearly 5x faster than a similar drone on Earth (increased velocity). Those engineering changes are purposefully meant to overcome the thin Martian atmosphere and generate the 1.5 lbs of lift needed to take off.

  • Nasa cannot afford a HD camera.

  • Thank you President Trump for funding NASA and making this a success. Don’t worry Joe phonograph records Biden thinks we went to the moon.

  • Space may very well just be the final frontier.... BUT IT'S MADE IN A HOLLYWOOD BASEMENT! ischats.info/fun/n8WJXoafXp6ZYYw/v-deo

  • Will it find spirit ?

  • Incredible! Congratulations to all involved!!!

  • Awesome

  • CGI at its best.

  • It's amazing to see the stuff us humans are capable of. Thanks scientists and engineers, without you guys we would be in the dark ages casting magic spells to cure diseases still.

  • I hope they will find 👽 and bring back to earth.

  • no COVID on mars....yet

  • Around separation from the shell velocity is 83m/s (299km/h or 186mph) at 2.6km altitude. So even WITH a parachute it is still slightly faster than a skydiver on earth in a head down position. Makes me think that SpaceX definitely has their work cut out for them to bleed off all that delta v without a parachute.

  • If humanity ever gains the technology and resources to actually terraform Mars... I hope that we will use it to heal the earth from the pollution and climate change we humans have caused. There is only one planet in the entire known universe that is perfectly suited for our species, and its this paradise we call Earth. Love it our hate it, it’s or home and it’s the only planet we can step outside and enjoy the sun and fresh air and sprawling life. I hope we learn to take care of this planet before we even think about leaving to find another one. Regardless, I am always in awe of what the brilliant minds at NASA are able to pull of these days. They’re really out here making human history!

  • Mitico!!! Mi piace un sacco 😘😘😘

  • 192 HATERS 😂

  • Show me mars globe if it's exist

  • Awesome job

  • looks a little cgi to me....and how can a parachute work like that in that type of altitude...jus saying if mars is 1/3rd of 1% of our atmosphere...the parachute wouldnt work realistically

    • @Shawn Wherry Your grasp of this whole concept is such an oversimplified and incorrect mess that there's no way to explain it any easier for you to understand. I do not understand how you have the capacity to use a keyboard, it's truly astounding.

    • @James Berglund its atmosphere is 1/3rd OF 1% that's less than 1% you moron lol

    • @James Berglund funny parachutes at high altitude dont work.....thus why most parachute jumpers can only go up so high...but if u have a parachute tech that does that lol ok

    • dude shut up flat earther just because u dont understand it doesn't make it not true

    • The descent stage was going nearly 14,000 MPH when the parachute deployed. The only way it would not have been ripped to shreds is if the atmosphere was very, very thin, like on Mars (you got the 1% right, not sure what the 1/3rd means in this case - Mars is 1/3 the size of Earth, is where you got that number I assume, but that's not really relevant to this).

  • I am literally speechless!!!… Great job you guys!

  • This new control center of NASA is more compact and smart kinda like Space X ! The gigantic and imposing control centers were just too much and can tell why billions were needed just to maintain those facilities !

  • Great to see that the Red Planet just got some more Space Junk added to the surface, before long it to will be over ran be Junkyards! LoL 😂😆😂😆

  • I believe God made us this Earth for a reason. There's a reason why our Earth is just so beautifully made, and how our Earth protects us from radiation, ETC. This is how we have magnetic, a beautiful sun, ETC. And not Mars because it is like -2000 on the surface, and has no protection at all.

    • @John Hazenhousen shh dont tell him that he has religion

    • Don’t you think it’s more likely that life adapted to the conditions on Earth, rather than Earth being designed to fit our needs?

    • well then why did god make humans smart enough to be able to go to other planets

  • Historically!!

  • Perseverance is 👽 to the mars from the 🌍

  • NASA can send a rover to Mars but have not yet sent a water and pressure resistant rover to explore the deep blue ocean. Mars looks lifeless and sending a mask-less US pandemic-ridden craft there seems senseless and mean spirited. Oh well, here's to learning nothing new, from the country that made the Kardashians and Traitor Trump. China or India should send a rover down into the depths and leave the US to look at desert rocks.

  • Lol so fake😆

  • ANOTHER FAKE NEWS LANDING AS FAKE IMPOSTOR FRAUD PRESIDENT DEMOCRAT AND WHAT LIAR FOR THE WORLD SO BAD.

    • @TheReal Doge "ok flat earther" is your only substance throughout this whole section. Be true to your heart and leave these nasa fantasies behind.

    • ok flat earther please leave

  • Even in a video showing us landing a rover on another planet people find a way to be rude, ignorant, violent or just plain stupid.

  • Oh get outta here this is BS LOL!!!! You mean to tell me they dont have a ton of cameras all over the ship to capture point of entry!? Why is that!? I feel sorry for you Jim jones Kool aid drinking folks! 🤣

    • Live footage was stored until successful touchdown otherwise the live video would have been 3 fps.

    • @TheBattalion12 then... what is this?

    • Im talking about LIVE FOOTAGE!!!! From earth Launch to mars landing, their is none, only CGI.

    • DO your Research before commenting something stupid

    • There is lol Search all photos captures by perseverance

  • They forgot to Photoshop the Earth-Blue-Sky into the Fake-Mars-Red-Sky!!!!

  • What, the brand new star trek movie?

  • How can you be pro choice after this

  • You can see the same thing in Nevada.. Mars is just another rock in the sky

  • * rover landing * NASA ppl: YAY Aliens: OH SHOOT

  • Как только услышал трек и захотел вам посоветовать, послушайте пожалуйста ischats.info/fun/pq5yinJhk5ealIg/v-deo

  • Where are the Flat Marsians now???...Oh sorry, I mean the Flat Earthers??? Flat Earthers 2020... Flat Marsians 2120...

  • another fake landing?? How stupid is this?

    • Show me PROOF dumbasses!

    • It’s crazy how people like this exists lol

  • Hope those martians are able to defend themselves better than the indigenous people on earth.

  • Now we just need to terraform mars so we can then destroy it

  • Awesome!!!

  • So fake!

    • @Asashi Amazing how idiots like you even exist.

    • Crazy how people like this exists

  • 73 years old and I am every bit as fascinated by Mars as I was at seven. This is just phenomenal.

  • The search for Matt Damon begins...

  • All those people commenting on the video quality need to know - Hollywood cameras are rubbish!! If you film footage using a dummy robot in Greenland with a Hollywood film set and take it back to Hollywood to be edited to be slightly more convincing this is what you end up with!! Time people open their eyes! THIS IS ALL A BIG FAT LIE!!!!!!! Help spread awareness so that the ignorance of humans doesn’t cause the elites to take away all of our reality!!! Next topic COVID-19 if you read into the terms of Brexit the only thing that could put a pause on Brexit was a global pandemic as soon as the UK leave the EU within a month we are hit with Coronavirus!!! All of this has been a smokescreen the vaccine is a DNA changer possibly with microchips in it!! Have you ever yet thought to yourself what are the long term effects of the vaccine and will it effect my children and their children. They are going to cull the population next thing 5G will trigger something in our bodies and mind control will happen like never before!!! The bible says it the Torah says it and even the Quran says it the Earth is flat people open your eyes stop being ignorant!!!!!

    • @Asashi I'm sorry friend I don't quite understand - would you like to share your view with everyone and explain why you think that?

    • Crazy how people like this exists

  • WooW i never see bounch of rock before, stunning. Plzz who cares about earth and people dying from hunger, homeless people all around the world, Spend more bilions of dolars, i wanna see how rock look's on other planets to.

  • flat mars'ers incoming

  • Must be fake. Didn't see Mark Watney

  • How is the russian trampoline doing these days, I wonder😆

  • Nasa should make the next smartphone camera

    • Aware Bear lol. And cost 50k

    • I mean it wouldn't come out very well considering they fake everything. The screen would just be an image of the phone lmao

  • It never ceases to amaze me what humanity can accomplish when they work together. Congratulations, from an outside observer!

  • When I type "NASA" on ISchats how is it that NBC News appears before NASA?

  • Tell me what is the propose of this rover? Governments from Earth has sent numerous probes, rovers, satellites, etc, to pollute Mars with. No new info other than not telling us they sent men there in 1972 and keep any real information a secret!

  • This is so cool!!

  • Awesome CG. It is incredible that this technology can produce life-like images and videos.

    • @oldi184 I'm going to go out on a limb and say that your opinion on this is meaningless.

    • @Asashi What? Don't tell me that you honestly believe that this is real deal. Don't get me wrong I am sure NASA went to Mars but this? Come on. Obvious computer generated graphics.

    • Crazy how people like this exists

  • what a waste of a lot of money

    • Have you seen the amount of tax dollars that go to the military or cigarettes? Way more

    • How is it a waste exactly?

  • Havent we sent rovers to mars already?

    • @onion savoya okay, to address your points: 1) "uh...mars is covered in lethal radiation" - The Martian atmosphere does not block radiation as well as the Earth's, but it's not lethal, especially for an astronaut wearing a space suit or within a habitat, which they'd need to be anyway to breathe. Not sure why that's a major point for you here. 2) "So what exactly are you looking forward to finding" - Signs of past life, and the past atmospheric and geologic history of Mars. You know, research, learning more about the universe. 3) "Water? Undrinkable" - Water is water, in the sense you mean H2O...if it's there, some filtration and processing would make it drinkable. Mars water would not be inherently different than water anywhere else. 4) "Earth? Ungrowable" - Not without some assistance - soil needs a microbial component to be fertile. With some time and processing there's no reason to think Martian regolith couldn't be turned into soil. 5) "Air? Unbreathable" - correct, it's only 1% as dense as Earth's atmosphere, and mostly CO2. We could not breathe Martian air as-is. 6) "Fire? Radiation" - what? 7) "Precious metals? Retrievable?" Probably nothing we don't already have on earth, but who knows what we'll find. I also don't think that's really a motivation for most of these missions. 8) "Didn't gold erupt from the solar surface? Sprinkling gold throughout space?" - One idea is that most of Earth's gold came from a period of gold-rich meteor bombardment not long after the Earth formed some 4.5 billion years ago. But no, it wasn't "erupted" from the sun. 9) "Are you trying to locate gold?" - No. Exploring Mars is not some sort of resource expedition. Even if we did find gold on Mars, it wouldn't make sense to mine it there to send back to Earth. We have gold here. Exploring Mars is about learning more about our solar system and one of our nearest planetary neighbors and the potential for life having arisen elsewhere. That's called research and scientific discovery which inevitably helps humanity and leads to better things. If that still sounds like a waste of time and resources to you then that's your call but it's sad to see someone with so little foresight.

    • Uh...mars is covered in lethal radiation. So what exactly are you looking forward to finding. Water? Undrinkable. Earth? Ungrowable. Air? Unbreathable. Fire? Radiation. Precious metals? Retrievable? Didnt gold erupt from the solar surface? Sprinkling gold throughout space. Are yu trying to locate gold?

    • Yes, several (Spirit, Opportunity, Curiosity, now Perseverance) along with a few stationary landers (like InSight). They are of course not all the same both in where they landed and what questions they were aiming to answer. Not only is Mars a big planet (so visiting one single spot wouldn't be super informative) but our technology gets better with time and with each new mission there are new questions we want to try and answer based on what we've seen from the previous missions. Science is an ongoing process.

  • Hoax.

    • You believe the Earth is flat don’t you?

  • so freaking COOL

  • This is emotional.

  • One is running

  • Space maybe the final frontier, but it’s made in a Hollywood basement!!

    • So you believe space doesn’t exist and that the earth is flat?

  • So gravity is just like Earth for it to land like that?

    • Yes and no - gravity exists anywhere there is mass, with more massive objects having more gravity. Mars is 1/3 the mass of Earth so it has about 1/3 Earth gravity.

  • Woww..just wooowwww NASA....KUDOS 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  • I like Greenland.

  • That looks so fake

  • Parachute? What’s it’s catching ? Air? I thought there’s no air in space, this is fake

    • @Mr Perfect Um, there is gravity on Mars. Who is questioning this? Gravity is not unique to Earth, it exists anywhere there is mass. The discussion about the different atmospheric densities and compositions of Earth vs. Mars and how that plays into parachutes at least has some depth to it. But gravity? My god.

    • @Chase Hilton and you have a server facial disability

    • @Mr Perfect you have a severe developmental disability

    • @asiancakes oh there must must gravity there too, enough for need of a parachute lol sheep 🐑

    • @Mr Perfect doesn’t mean there’s no atmosphere though, there’s still air around to have the parachutes work, and besides they work very barely it just slows the craft down before the sky crane does the rest

  • I wonder how brain dead you would have to be to convince yourself this is actual footage of them landing a rover on Mars.
