The Launch of Perseverance to Mars

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

  • I really like you and I love so much all your videos, but The translation of this video in Spanish really stinks, is full of religious references, please check this issue out, and keep teaching science.

  • I’ve always seen those launches from NASA channel or news channel, but watching your perspective is surreal. Reminds me that book of Ray Bradbury “The Martian Chronicles” I see this video and is like if I am an spectator seeing all those rocket being launched to colonize Mars.

  • I remember watching the first space shuttle launch (my aunt was an engineer on the build, so we got special seating)... watching the first reusable launch vehicle take to the heavens. Oh... and my great grandfather was with us. He was born in 1884 so he was 19 when he read about the Write brothers flying the first airplane... and he got to see the space shuttle launch! My father is now retired from the Navy, but during the 70s, he was commanding the USS Ticonderoga when it plucked the Apollo and Skylab astronauts out of the ocean - I guess you could say my family has interacted with the space program since we landed on the moon... but I still remember the look of awe my great grandfather had on his face. It's a look you cannot fake. Here was a man who was around when man first flew... first used airplanes in combat... saw the V1s and V2s hit England in WWII... saw the first jet airplanes... was not too far away when the first jet broke the sound barrier... heard about the Soviet Sputnik in real time... our own lunar landing and Skylab space station... then the space shuttle. He passed away at 100 years old from the flu. His mental and physical facilities in tact, so prior to him catching the flu, we heard him explain history first-hand... but watching the shuttle take flight? I think that was where his level of awe reached the limits a person could feel. He was a great man who saw a LOT of history and thankfully ever became senile - he was sharp as a tack and taught my family many things that people only think of as "in the olden days".

  • Alone with four walls in Cairns, you’ve reminded me a rocket launch is on my bucket list. I saw us walk on the moon, a Falcon Heavy launch would be something to see, feel and hear. Meanwhile life on earth becomes more insufferable, an increasingly meaningless void without hope for more and more people every day. Forget about % lifting people from poverty, the total number of people suffering, in pain and agony with zero hope of a better life, is now MORE than the total human population when my grand parents were born. I saw man walk on the moon, age 11, this is what we’ve done. Sure, I’ll wait n see a launch, remind myself what humans are capable of, which makes what we have done all the worse, totally suicidal, the final motivator to head to Zurich for a legal self death.

  • Yes it is! (extraordinary) What was the early success rate for landing on Mars? Russians couldn’t do it at first. Yeah, Russia’s first success in reaching Mars crashed on Mars. www.space.com/13558-historic-mars-missions.html Most of their early attempts failed to make Earth orbit, some failing launch, so clearly general space travel problems nothing to do with difficulties specific to Mars missions, so my bad. Russian failures are NOT an indicator of how difficult Mars missions are.

Only those of us elderly and with multiple illnesses have troubles. Vaccines not needed bc Diatomaceous Earths provides a multitude of probiotics but no monies for FDA & big pharmaceutical companies.

  • I wish we had more private venture in space travel and discovery. 50 years of government only has moved very slowly at a snails pace. But now with a few private players we are moving forward with more missions and more aggressive goals. I want to see regular people with the opportunities to go into space. I hope in my lifetime we build and send out a long journey discovery starship. With no goal of returning. Just keep going. A Star Trek kind of vessel ...

  • I'd love to see a rocket launch with my own eyes at least once in my life. I think it would be almost a religious experience for me. When I was a kid, my dream was to become an astronaut. I wanted to see the Earth from space, and witness the break of dawn and Sun rising behind our home planet. That'll likely never happens, but thanks to satellites, internet and other technology, at least we can all see the feed from ISS and from the point of view of all those courageous people working in space, for science. And cheers also to those working on Earth making it all possible! At today's world, I'd put all my faith in humanity on science; the people working for science are doing an important job, for us all. I wish everyone would live up to it as well, we should all do better.
