New: Mars In 4K
A world first. New footage from Mars rendered in stunning 4K resolution. We also talk about the cameras on board the Martian rovers and how we made the video.

The cameras on board the rovers were the height of technology when the respective missions launched.

A question often asked is:
‘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.

Taking a look at the merchandise above is the best way to support the channel! P.S: Sorry about the font change halfway through. My rendering software decided to forget a font after almost a week of failed renders. This video was almost not made due to my struggling PC. Correction: Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Not Renaissance. Misread. Correction: 8 Megabits per second, not Megabytes.

    It is now confirmed, Space Balls sucked all the water off the planet. I knew this but until now I could not confirm it.

  • formerparatrooper

    Well, a bit of good news--the politicians have not yet found a way to contaminate the planet, but given time I would expect the most godless of them to erect a sign that reads, " THERE YOU HAVE IT, NO GOD HERE EITHER" just like they have on the planet earth. The video is absolutely excellent though.

  • RonLarhz

    It's earth to me. They didnt point at the sky to prove it's different. We shouldn't be seeing earth's moon if it's really mars. Earth have many alien-like places. And sun should look further/weaker.

    Due to speed and capabilities of sending data from Mars directly to earth, as my dumbo, i just wonder if we could make the amplifier stations on the way back to earth?? If possible, it’ll not just help the missions on Mars, but all missions in solar system??


    Nasa: Okay guys we did our best for the community to send 4k images from Mars. Me: watch the martian photos on 240p Nasa: my disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.

    They can still shoot a good quality 1080p video, encode it and send it. Nowadays even a full 2 hours movie can be encoded to less than 2 GB. So an 3 minutes long video shouldn't be too difficult.
