    While NASA's Mars rover Perseverance travels through space toward the Red Planet, its nearly identical rover twin is hard at work on Earth. The vehicle system test bed (VSTB) rover named OPTIMISM is a full-scale engineering version of the Mars-bound rover. It is used to test hardware and software before the commands are sent up to the Perseverance rover.
    Just like Perseverance, OPTIMISM is outfitted with wheels, cameras, and computers to help it drive autonomously. After taking its first drive indoors, the VSTB rover took a spin in the Mars Yard, a dirt field which simulates the Red Planet's surface.
    OPTIMISM is stationed in a garage at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, sharing a space with Curiosity's twin rover MAGGIE.
    The Perseverance rover is set to land on the surface of Mars on February 18, 2021.

      That's it? I thought we'd get to see actual tests. Why are these commercial-like videos released? I don't care if Perseverance has a twin sibling on Earth if I don't get to watch the things it does. It's common sense. Why would this satisfy anyone? It's as if the video's sole intent were to get you to say WOW how amazing, how interesting. But then the video ends and you're thinking wait a minute. I still have no real idea what things Perseverance can do. NASA if you're gonna share, then share in depth. This is lame.

      Thank you NASA, we love your job

      This is nice but I'm trying to find something with it driving in realtime... (A friend is picturing it like the rover out of _The Martian_)

      So many videos on this channel are tease type affairs. Why don't you show the actual thing rather than telling me you're maybe thinking about planning on doing the thing in the future if it goes well, but we will have to see? Just show the actual thing FFS. By the videos released on this channel I'm made to believe that preparing to get prepared to do a test is most of what happens at JPL.

    88. Tuan Le Invitation code: TOHI1 - Is Pi a blockchain? Answer: Yes, Pi is blockchain. - Status right now: according to the latest update, currently Core Team has tested 6,500 nodes to enter mainNet. These selected nodes will be tested for Pi wallet. The total number of downloaded and installed nodes is 200,000+. - Time to enter mainNet: fourth quarter of 2021; According to the current test speed, until the fourth quarter there is surplus time. Accordingly, there will also be KYC and IAT status simultaneously from that point on. Not when the system has 1 billion people, that milestone is a vision. Pi price: for early transactions between IAT-approved people, Pi price is around $ 100 in Canada and the US; In Vietnam, there is an early trading platform on the sanpi page. link, which specifies $ 7-8 per Pi. Early transaction prices are determined by the Pi community and based on the local economic situation by consensus, not by Core Team pricing; The Pi's official exchange rate will be determined during the global conference. - If the person does not run the node, is the amount of Pi valid? Answer: valid. Running the node is just the volunteer task for the Pi ecosystem, which will bring magnitude to the Pi blockchain. If you don't run, it won't hurt you. - Which floor does Pi go on? Listing on the exchange has little to do with the development roadmap and mining interests; When entering the mainnet, each person has a wallet and can transfer Pi to each other, then can use Pi to exchange money or goods directly, Pi community itself is a huge exchange. However, a potential crypto like Pi cannot avoid being noticed and traded on crypto exchanges. The goal of Nicolas is to create a decentralized cryptocurrency to avoid being bought and manipulated by tycoons, so it will be difficult to buy in bulk or sell in bulk to manipulate value. - When does Pi stop mining? Answer: Every time the number of miners increases 10 times, the speed halves and returns to 0 when it reaches 1 billion; However, it is not necessary until then that it is possible to stop mining right after entering the mainnet by the end of this year, based on the results of the plenary meeting. - What is plenary meeting? Ans: is a giant online meeting organized by Core Team and mining delegates around the world. The last time, this meeting lasted 72 hours. - Can I participate and comment on Pi's future? Answer: Yes, everyone in the mining community has the right to speak up, the meeting is held in English, so please email your presentation to the Organizing Committee.,


      Why NASA doesn’t send a RC electric Jeep or HUMMER with tougher tires ?

    90. Tau ceti

      How could you send a rover to mars and none to its moons?

      1. Tau ceti

        @Asjen Mensink True a stationary lander similar to Phoenix is probably the best option.

      2. Asjen Mensink

        A rover on Phobos or Deimos would probably be near imposible to drive, as the surface gravity is 0,0057m/s/s (on Phobos) and 0,0031m/s/s (on Deimos) vs Earth's 9.81 m/s/s. If a human would stand on it you could jump of Deimos (escape velocity is 20 km/h of 5,33 m/s) and maybe Phobos as well (41 km/h or 11.39 m/s) . A wheeled or tracked rover would probably flip itself over constantly. Stationary probes are probably the best. The Russians did send two probes (Phobos 1&2) in early July 1988 but both failed. Phobos 1 was lost due too a computer malfuction on its way to Mars on september 2 1988 resulting from a software error that deactivated its thrusters resulting in it failing to reorient its solarpanels to the sun and depleted its batteries. Phobos 2 did reach Martian orbit but communications were lost as it failed to reconnect to Earth on March 27 1989 upon approaching Deimos. While in orbit around Mars it photographed about 80% the surface of Phobos and ran its infrared spectrometer(no water was detected).

      الوصول إلى القمر حقيقة ام خديعة ??? نظرية المؤامرة في الصعود للقمر!!! هل هبطنا على سطح القمر؟ نظرية مؤامرة يقول أصحابها بأن بعض أو كل عناصر برنامج أبولو 11 الذى يرتبطبالهبوط على سطح القمر كانت خدعة وقد قامت بها وكالةناسا بالتعاون مع منظمات أخرى. ظهرت هذه النظرية بعد اتمام الرحلة وتحديدًا في عام 1970, حيث ظهرت العديد من التحليلات العلمية أو المبنية على نظرية المؤامرة التي تشكّك في صحة هذه الرحلة بقولها بأن الإنسان بالفعل لم يهبط علي القمر وقتها. وان الصور والفيديوهات تم انتاجها في استديوهات ارضية. اظهرت استطلاعات الرأي وقتها بأن عشرين في المائة من الشعب الأمريكي لايزال يؤمن بأن وصول الإنسان إلى القمرأكذوبة كبيرة. بينما وصلت النسبة إلى 28 في المائة عند الشعب الروسي. وفي عام 2001 قامت شركة فوكسبانتاج فيلم وثائقي تحت عنوان: نظرية المؤامرة: هل هبطنا علي القمر فعلا؟[1][2] تحدث فيه علماء أمريكيين من مجالات مختلفة كما ضم متحدثًا واحدًا من وكالة "ناسا" لاضفاء الموضوعية على الفيلم. بعض العلماء الأمريكيين علي قناعة تامة بأن ما حدث في حزيران عام 1969 مجرد فيلم أمريكي باهظ التكاليف أنتج وأخرج برعاية وكالة "ناسا" التي كانت تهدف من ورائه اقناع الإتحاد السوفيتيبتفوّق الولايات المتحدة في مجال الفضاء مما يتيح لها للأخيرة التفوق العسكري في حال حدوث حرب بين الدولتين. ورغم كثرة التحليلات بين الطرفين إلا أن بعض الآراء المحايدة رجحت أن تكون «رحلة أبولو 11 قامت بالفعل وعلى متنها رواد فضاء, ولكنها لم تستطع أن تصل إلى القمر لكونه أمر يتطّلب تقنيات وإمكانيات نادرة تكاد تكون شبه مستحيلة علميًا. مما دفع "ناسا" لانتاج فيلم تخيّلي وصور مصطنعة للرحلة حتى تستطيع تحقيق الريادة للولايات المتحدة في سبق الفضاء مع الإتحاد السوفيتي» ** الدوافع التحد الإعلامي وضغوط الحرب الباردة تعتبر روسيا في ظل الإتحاد السوفييتي أول دولة تخرج إلى الفضاء الخارجي، حيث يعتبر رائد الفضاء الروسي يوري ألكسيافيتش جاجارين هو اول انسان يصعد الى الفضاء الخارجي ويدور حول الارض وذلك في عام 1961. وفي خضم الصراع المحموم في الحرب الباردة، كانت الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية قد أخذت على عاتقها تحديا استراتيجيا بأن تحقق إنجازا في مجال اكتشاف الفضاء الخارجي يفوق أهمية ما قام به السوفييت. الصراع التكنولوجي والحرب الباردة في ظل الصراع العلمي والتكنولوجي في الحرب الباردة بين القوتين الولايات المتحدة و الاتحاد السوفيتي وبعد نجاح الاخيرة في اطلاق اول قمر صناعي واول إنسان للفضاء . كانت الولايات المتحدة تحتاج الي رد قوي وسريع علي ذلك حتي تتمكن من استعادة هيبتها. وكانت فكرة " هبوط الإنسان علي القمر " تمثل انتصارا علميا ساحقا علي السوفييت وانجاز بشري غير مسبوق . وكان الإنجاز يجب ان يكون فريدا بحيث يعجز الاتحاد السوفيتي أيضا عن القيام به. حرب فيتنام كانت النتائج السيئة في حرب فيتنام لها تأثير سلبي علي المجتمع الأمريكي . لان موقف الجيش الأمريكي معقد في الحرب كان لابد من البحث عن وسيلة لالهاء الشعب ومنحه احساس بالثقة والنصر. كانت رحلة ابوللو 11 بمثابة طوق النجاة أيضا للسياسيين في أمريكا وكان لا بد من اتمام هذه الرحلة المستحيلة باي شكل من الاشكال . مما يعطي دافع كبير لتزييف هذه الرحلة لتحقيق الهدف المنشود الادلة والبراهين * العلم الأمريكي علميا لا توجد رياح علي سطح القمر وكان العلم الأمريكي يرفرف كما ظهر في احدي الصور . عدم وجود اي اثار للنجوم في السماء حيث ان جميع الصور تظهر السماء كاحلة بدون اي اثار للنجوم او لاي اجرام سماوية. ورغم ان بعض علماء ناسا عللوا ذلك بان انعكاس ضوء الشمس علي القمر عالي جدا مما تطلب اثناء التصوير استخدام فلاتر لتخفيف سطع الضوء مما حجب تصوير اي شيء في السماء . وجود الظلال في اتجاهات مختلفة من المفترض أن مصدر الاضاءة الوحيدة هي الشمس , وبالتالي يجب ان تكون جميع الظلال في اتجاه واحد ومتوازية . ولكن حسب ما اكتشفه العلماء وجود ظلال للأجسام في اتجاهات مختلفة في نفس اللحظة مما يوحي بوجود أكثر من مصدر للأضاءة . درجة حراراة القمر من المعروف علميا ان درجة حراراة القمر نهارا تصل الي 123° نهارا و (-153°) ليلا وهيا تتطلب وجود بذلات ذات مواد وتصميم صعب ويجب توافر اجهزة تبريد وتدفئة خاصة لتخفيف هذه الدرجات العالية واجهزة لمعالجة فرق الضغط وغيرها وهو ما يتطلب تقينات عالية غير متوفرة في ذلك الوقت

    92. Bernardi Hugo

      Nuestro planeta Tierra es hoy el único lugar conocido que alberga vida. La posible existencia de vida extraterrestre es una cuestión que ha fascinado a la humanidad durante siglos. Desde el punto de vista científico, obtener una respuesta requiere un enorme esfuerzo colaborativo entre múltiples campos de investigación científica que incluyen astronomía, física, química, biología, geología, e incluso filosofía de la ciencia. Es importante no perder de vista que este impulso por explorar otros planetas, no nos distraiga de lo mas importante que es cuidar el nuestro, que hasta ahora es un paraíso único, en medio del desierto espacial.

      seria bueno que los niños de Africa no sufrieran por alimentos, buscar vidas en otro planeta sabiendo que hay pobreza en la tierra.

    95. TheMich hiker

      So... it can operate on the surface of mars but can't drive down a road on this planet? How much cooler would it have been to have it drive itself to the testing location, instead of being carried?

      1. TheMich hiker

        @Tatsu Duck Good point. They only showed it leaving and arriving so thats the only times it would need to drive, they could carry it in between. It would at least give the impresssion that it drove all the way.

      2. How Does it Really Work

        @Tatsu Duck Indeed, it would be ridiculously, painfully, slow. And they don't seem to have a battery for it -- it is always shown tethered -- with a power and data cables plugged in. But if JPL decided to move the rover using its own motors, it would not take more than one working day to traverse JPL grounds -- the JPL facility is about 500 meters across and the top speed of the rover is said to be 90 meters/hour. On Mars, of course, it goes *much* more slowly than this top speed -- mission average for Curiosity is a tad over 7 metres/day.

      3. Tatsu Duck

        Travelling with that slow rover would take weeks or months just to reach a certain location

    96. Bhav

      Humans consume natural resources, polute the earth. Mars will be the next victim once conolised. I don't mind what NASA are doing but right now the money spent on this mission could have been spent on how to find ways to fix our planet like clean up our oceans and reduce landfills.

      1. Dr Mantis Toboggan

        So you want NASA to stop working on this and start working on ways to help the earth? Wouldn't it make more Sense for some people who specialize in that field to work on it, not a company who specialize in space exploration? It would be like paying a mechanic to fix an electrical problem

    97. Daniel Jensen

      I will never come over how big the rovers actually are. I mean with the Spirit rovers I always thought they where the size of a large RC car. Then I see one with people around and just realize that they are close to the size of a shopping cart
