I find it even more cool that they will be flying a drone from Perseverance, the first drone on another planet. I hope the pictures and video are amazing. This just shows what humans can do if they can put aside differences and work together.

That made me wonder if Mars has an atmosphere a drone can be flown in, as opposed to a vacuum. Google tells me that the atmosphere of Mars is about 100 times thinner than Earth's, and it is 95 per cent carbon dioxide. That seems quite challenging but if they've sent one, it'll no doubt work.

Very interesting indeed.

Let's see how this post ages:

Trump will 100% be the President on Jan 20. History is about to be made and the World gets to see how real Americans deal with corruption.

Perhaps ms(moby) is the pilot and will regale us with tales of his service.

Perseverance is the size of a small car and is taller than a human. It also records sound....so we can hear the wind, animals or aliens.

It will be awhile before it attempts the first flight.
