yeah true, still worth a shot tho, i may be well off here but if a parachute can function perfectly in mars atmosphere to land the rover, surely a drone would work fine also

Best plan I thought was one that involved a solar-powered dirigible that could heat up with the sun and essentially fly around taking pictures until it broke down. I don't know what it would do in a dust storm. Fly a little higher, I suppose.

Neato.

Looks just like Earth.

Anyone else see the patio paver center of the screen @ about 1:33?

Great video, Diablo 2 music adds to that.

The OP explains how the images are made into a video, care to explain why it isn't real? There's plenty of Mars images available that don't look too far from these in quality, environment and more.

Great video! Maybe they could use a LIDAR scanner next time and make their own 3D videos. I think that would be most practical. A drone would probably get only a handful of flights before its crashed.

They used the music from the computer game Diablo 2 (from Act 2 in the desert).

Cool vid, thanks for sharing!

I'm not sure how good they would work in such thin, cold CO2 air. I understood that the solar panels would supply heat and power to the equipment.
