What was intended to be a 90 days mission on Mars, ended up lasting 15 years, before a severe dust storm ended it. Maybe next time NASA could invent dust removal auto-washing solar panels and a storm shield protection. As for the Opportunity, all this rover needs is a little dusting to pick up the sun energy again, so technically it's not broken yet.
If you ever wondered why we cannot see any videos of Mars surface /only pictures/ then you just saw one. This is ultra rare historical raw video footage of Mars surface by the Rover. From the vault. Have you noticed the Martian fly? NASA to you.
Part 13 of a series of slideshows and videos detailing the resurrection and re-build of a Lamborghini Kitcar. This episode covers the Holley Carburetor, manifold, Rover V8, bodywork and fuel pump. Part 14 to follow.
ArtAlienTV - " Take a look at the new 2020 Mars Rover design in this high res illustration. It is similar to the Curiosity but has the addition of GPR (Ground penetrating RADAR) to observe underground structures. (Buildings ?) But will the rather flimsy wheel design let it down as it has partly with the Curiosity? And will the French give us the images from the new Mastcam and in what format will they be? Perhaps we will get some higher quality PNG or TIFF images as standard instead of these foggy over compressed JPEG ones we get now from NASA ".
See me on the new Ancient Aliens series on the History Channel 2016. Episodes 1 & 2 - "Pyramids of Antarctica" & "Destination Mars"

The Power of YouTube
After my recent appearances on the new 2016 season of Ancient Aliens and meeting very interesting experts from around the world, I am more convinced than ever that my research has lead me on the right track into unveiling the truth about our distant past both on Earth, Mars and other near planets.
After starting my channel just a few years ago, I seem to have been slingshot-ed into the public domain and the TV world at high speed starting with Channel 5 and now the History Channel. This goes to show the real power that YouTube has and the way that TV companies pull new presenters and material from diverse online sources.
The TV world is always looking for new talent and a fresh look at sometimes controversial subject matters. It finally seems that the hard research that me and other YouTube channels are doing is getting not only noticed but snapped up in a bid to keep up with research that is leaping forward at quite a pace.
It also seems that the news press are finally taking heed of our articles although often with a not so subliminal sneer usually reserved for politicians.
I now think there has been a polar shift in the media attitude towards exopolitics and planetary exploration caused by us online space geeks. Somebody high up in the food chain has finally realized that we are actually going to colonize Mars and perhaps other near bodies.
Maybe some of the global elite want a place reserved in case of a global disaster down here on our choking Mother Earth.
There is still a way to go yet but events are accelerating, just don't expect everyone to relish it.
