You can tell which is the animation because it has the thruster plumes you can actually see. The real ones have nearly invisible plumes.
Yeah! The context they gave for this in the news conference was super interesting. I'm so used to roaring engines lol
Edit: For visibility everyone, I uploaded this video in widescreen to Youtube [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivPWAGBIOdE) if you want to watch there
Using Belter music to celebrate an Earther accomplishment on Mars... wow. Delightfully devious, I like it.
I mean, I'm 80% sure that Deep Purple actually came from earth.
It is so depressing looking at the comments for these on Twitter, it’s all people saying it was done in Utah and even a literal verified rocket scientist saying they are milking it and the video is underwhelming
Going on Twitter for insightful opinions is like jumping on lava to take a shower
I know that exact scene from the expanse. Do you know what the name of that belter rock song is?
It’s so good. Yup, it’s called [highway star](https://open.spotify.com/track/6csvrAtuHvYhom6UquyAfN?si=FBFK8jR5S8uC0ltw_NZlGw)
Is the audio from the episode where that one guy is attempting to lap the solar system in the fastest time or something and goes through the ring?
Wouldn't call it going "throu" the ring exactly..
THIS. IS. AWESOME!!! Definitely gives NASA a better image to the fucking epic stuff they do. Also, The Expanse is my favorite show, bitter sweet waiting for the next episode. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you! Yeah, I do appreciate the value in the future positive tone NASA takes, but I dunno... what they do is so badass! Why not lean into it and show how cool it is too?
So this blew up LOL. A few people asked for Youtube links and it to be in widescreen, so I uploaded it to [youtube](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivPWAGBIOdE&feature=youtu.be) for anyone wanting to see it there.
It's got a thumbs up from me!
Like any self respecting duster is gonna listen to that skinny pop music.
That’s the last time you say that on my ship
I don’t like it when studios add in fake camera shaking in obviously CGI scenes.
Just keep the camera stable.
Depends on the scene. Sometimes you need the shake to sell the power of what you are seeing.
I agree though many take it too far. For an example of it done (in my opinion) well take a look at the launch scene from Apollo 13.
This is basically what I expected the launch to be when I tuned in last week, but instead got people reading out status the whole time. Probably it's my fault for not realizing it before, but now I know these aren't visually action-packed events.
You can't live stream something over 212,000,000 km away because it takes too long to send the data back.
To clarify, the bandwidth is very low due to the distance and strength of the broadcast equipment. The distance itself isn't the issue but we don't have dedicated high powered broadcast equipment on Mars to send data back faster.
Even if we had an extremely powerful setup on the surface it would still not be HD live streams.
excellent job! I really like how you sequenced the NASA/JPL CG with the actual footage! It really tells the story!
I thought the titles meant this [The Expanse](https://youtu.be/5Y4wuVfV5G4) and was excited.
It is! It's this [scene](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oATT8mKoILE). The intro, and the whole show, get me so amped about space, but I felt like the rock and roll was a refreshing creative touch. I mean, space is brutal, rock and roll seemed to fit :)
Those real clips are incredible. Mars is much bluer/colder-looking than I'd imagined. It makes the place so much more real to me with actual video footage.
Spotify notates it as the “Belter Version” of Highway Star!
Getting some SpaceX livestream start vibes from this. Fantastic work!
Thank you! I got so fired up while editing this. The combined engineering effort of this whole event is truly remarkable.
Can someone explain to me what happens to that flying machine that dropped the rover and flew away?
Where does it go after dropping rover ?
It's about 1.2 km the the north west, behind the rover. The heat shield and chute are roughly 1.5 km away to the north east. have a look [https://mars.nasa.gov/resources/25630/perseverance-and-mars-2020-spacecraft-components-on-the-surface/](https://mars.nasa.gov/resources/25630/perseverance-and-mars-2020-spacecraft-components-on-the-surface/)
Who would've thought that a '72 Deep Purple song covered in a fine Belta patois would hit so hard. Or maybe it's the underlying accomplishment shown in the video? I don't know, but I do know that *I'm not crying; you're crying*
Nice job u/whothatcodeguy
What's awesome to me is that instead of landing the new rover with parachutes or surrounded by impact balloons like they have in the past which is likely due to the weight of the new lander and the other methods would not scale up well. No. They decided to land the rover with a crane. A. Crane fitted with rockets. A crane with rockets. Just let that sink in.
The level of engineering and precision that went into this mission amazes me and gives me a sense of pride.
I'm not an American but I feel the same. That is the NASA lovers of space exploration want and enjoy, the one on the final frontier and the cutting edge of technology.
THIS is what I was scouring the internet for since the second they released the video! I need more! Can somebody link other supercuts that creative people may already have produced? I'm so bad at searching for things like this...
you should work for NASA marketing, if there is such a thing
I'm getting real Doom vibes from this for some reason
Why were the jets of the sky crane not burning in the real footage?
They use hydrazine as a fuel which doesn’t produce a visible flame.
One of the smartest and most incredible landings of all time.
Nasa deserves Hella more funding.. flying a drone they can't even see with 10,000,000ping...
I think this is only the second time such a landing has been conducted
Damn, great job! Me the whole time watching this: :D
Reminded me of one of my favorite old-school YouTube videos [NIN to Mars.](https://youtu.be/6ajsXzTFLYA)
Really cool video! Just curious, what's the song you used?
[highway star, belter version](https://open.spotify.com/track/6csvrAtuHvYhom6UquyAfN?si=8ICYmxwyQi2FGstIr02exg)

They need to have a camera that shoots off during re-entry or a whole extra craft for the those purposes. I'd wanna see it, just put myself there. They'd be glamour shots to fuel the minds of the next generation.
Watching their excitement is so infectious. I could not imagine the levels of emotion and commitment that comes with being involved in something that risky and rewarding.
Maybe the Mars theme from Mass Effect 3 would fit the bill as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DIE-jG3WDA
The video is nothing short of breathtaking
That's some excellent splicing, thanks for this.
What happened to the crane thing that lowered the rover? It's shown flying away
Got as far away as possible until it ran out of fuel and dropped out of the sky
YES YES YES YES YES
Watched four times in a row! Thank you for giving me what I didnt know I needed!
Beautiful work. Kudos.
The song seems to be inspired from Deep Purple's Highway Star.
This is much much better without sound. Great work!
This is SO COOOOOOOL ! Thank you for taking out the time to do it.
KUDOS MAN! I've seen all this footage and animation before hand but your audio made me have chills. Great OC, OP!
Reminded me of the Heavy Metal car landing scene. Radar (radar, radar) Rider!
Got to be honest, with that kind of music, I was totally expecting a humanoid robot to pop out, and start kicking and shooting in the air as soon as it landed. 'Merica!!!
this is the coolest thing i’ve seen in a while god damn
Totally got south park kenny tweaking to cat piss vibes here. When does perseverence reach the breastiary in nipopolis?
