The shameless Chinese can't believe how much detail was given away in this video. Soon they'll be selling it back to NASA.

Not just flying on another planet. But flying on another planet with rarefied atmosphere and low gravity. In other instances it will need different calibration.

surely there is some plants that can work in such harsh environments and photosynthesize or we could make one. Then just send it to mars and let it create an atmosphere so its less volatile.

But the speed of sound depends of the density of the same one.

I hate NASA. Why not send hundreds of drones. They lack creativity.

They lack funding.

Hey look, they are trying to recreate the technology to fly to the moon and fly around the moon again. If we were only as technologically advanced today as we were 50 years ago.

If only we had some evidence of it being real then people could stop using that claim as evidence that the moon landings were faked.

The speed of sound is lower then on earth right did they took that into consideration they probably have (but what is the speed of sound on Mars is it just 1% of the speed one earth or are there other variables)

Would a hot air or hydrogen balloon-style design work on Mars?
crash - 16 days ago
Not easily. The atmosphere on there is very thin so there aren't many options. Plus, you have to get it there. A balloon can easily break. And considering the winds that happen, it might not be the best option.

90 seconds flight time is a joke straight up then down like a periscope.

How do you not ever name these brilliant engineers you have here telling your story? Seems kinda disrespectful.
sbmphr - 27 days ago
Classified, he would have to shoot you.

So what if the propeller breaks?
Super sonic knives baby!

Then it will become a million dollar piece of Martian scrap metal.

What about the copter kicking up dust? Is that an issue?

What about the rocket deployment vehicle for the last rover? That doesn't count?

Alright, I'll ask what everyone is thinking...

what happens when it tips over?

So if everything goes as planned, then this will not only be the first powered aircraft on another planet, but it will also be the worst one we ever make.

Super interesting video, thanks Veritasium!! If you would like to see the first flight on earth, of an ion thruster with onboard power, please click on the channel icon to the left.

Maybe some day they could mount a reasonably high power laser on the ground module that could be directed toward the UAV to help keep it warm and thus give it more time aloft.
Also they could build a deployable docking station away from the ground rover that could help recharge its batteries once it lands so it could make more than one flight per day.

"simplest" is a correct superlative of "simple"

Have they provided a dust cleaning system for solar panels? On Mars a lot of dust and sand that will settle on them.

Why not methane? it can insulate more heat.
