That was beautiful. Thanks subby.

It was beautiful.

But you get to work with hi-res images from the surfaces of another planet and you can't use consistent capitalisation for the labels in a 10 minute video? It's not rocket science!

Fantastic images, but it's more panned images, than footage

Funny how video can't be transmitted in this day and age. Clearly, NASA is editing images to hide the truth.

Bovine Diarrhea Virus: Funny how video can't be transmitted in this day and age. Clearly, NASA is editing images to hide the truth.


the problem is that the equipment was the best we had when it launched, so recent technological advances won't change it because you can't exactly just hop over to mars and swap out components. It was built almost a decade ago.

You then have to think that it has to beam that data a heck of a long way, your average phone transmits no more than 20km - this has to send data 100,000,000km and all it has to power that is a few solar cells operating on dim light.

Billions of dollars spent...  Unknown amounts of data sent from millions of miles away... and they didn't render the single greatest achievement of our species into 4k resolution?

Most of the footage was actually years old, but it is a nice presentation.
