I' m gonna go ahead and say that if this video proves anything, it's how easily all the moon footage could be faked. Even the shots of the far side
with huge constructs. So much tech under the bridge now you can't trust anything.

First-off, I really enjoyed the video. It speaks to my longing to live long enough to see people go to Mars.
That said, I saw enough evidence to indicate a hoax.
- The initial approach to Mars was along an equatorial trajectory. Successive shots showed us getting closer to the Tharsis volcanoes. Meanwhile, Vallis Marinaris rotated into sunlight and we flew directly over that (btw, it was good attention to detail to show the right amount of rotation, in the correct direction, during the hours of approach).
Then we saw clips of us flying over the polar regions of Mars. This doesn't fit the earlier shots of an equatorial orbital insertion trajectory. It takes a lot of delta-V to significantly change the plane of your orbit like that. It would close to double the overall fuel requirement. If they had wanted a polar orbit, they would have used a polar insertion trajectory.

Come on people. This is a video from TFH and It's called "Into Mars Orbit". He did this some 11 months ago.
This is how he explains the video.
"I made this video with real photographs and the only true real footage is of the crew from the Apollo missions. Everything else is cgi with photo's. I could add a lot more into it, but I'm working on other stuff too. :-) "
Go to youtube and go to the channel "The Faking Hoxer". His stuff it really good actually.

I could fake something like this with a few high quality prints of high resolution Mars photos, some decent models and a good HD video camera. It's well done and very effective, but not terribly difficult to fake and not even very expensive.
