I'm not sure how long it takes a radio wave to get from Mars to Earth but there will definitely be a time delay. It's not like if they see a Martian they can quickly turn the cameral on him in a flash.
Communication between Mars & Earth takes anywhere from 4.3 to 21 minutes depending on conditions. I’m sure other eyes are going to see & censor the video feeds before the rest of use do. Looks like we are going to see the feed on the 14th however I bet NASA is watching as we speak.
Thanks for the MHO’s!
There were a whole bunch of volunteers for a one way mission to Mars and they were supposed to be training for that. but that was like 4 years ago. I'm beginning to think they all washed out or gave up on any possible mission.
I think it’s an engineering problem, they can’t send them unless they know they can keep them alive.
Plus they have to send all the habitats and tech first, and probably have robots do much of the pre prep work to have these colonisers have a good chance at a start for life.
I'm thinking it will never happen. If some emergency happens on the 8 month journey they are screwed!
I think the theory is that they will star to creat live in one of the abandoned lava tubes what the place needs is seven billion people and all their farts to start a climate change. We should all go there.
I don't know. One stray spark and all those farts don't work well together.
Yeah but something has to turn up the heat when it’s minus 40 degrees in the middle of the day.

I still wouldn't put anything past them seeing as they get a big chunk of cash from the budget for results.
True, the air is too thin to create much lift but we'll have to see.
Not a landing. They are sending what amounts to a drone up to get some views.
I believe that their is some atmosphere and maybe that combined with the lower gravity of Mars would allow it to work
I wouldn't have the foggiest.
At least that seems believable.
Would you have been the first to go? Maybe that one was not carried over and you float in space forever.
