I came across this video from NASA claiming that they were gonna fly a drone unmasked
My immediate thought was no Vickers Mars has about 1/100 the atmosphere of Earth
So how are they gonna fly that thing in an atmosphere
Now I've called up NASA when they've come out with bull# before...

My one question that nobody has asked. Why? What has NASA got to gain with a flying drone? Doesn't Mars orbiter take good enough pictures of Mars? Why do they need to fly close to the surface?

If it doesn't work, it would not be the first time NASA made an expensive mistake. The thing about their mistakes is that someone else pays for them and they gain money for everything they do, even if it does not work. I am sure that they will make two and one will be stationed on earth somewhere where it looks like Mars.

Same thing I wondered, if Mars has an atmosphere close to vacuum....
