    Apparently HBO Max was in charge of film quality.

    It can take hours to get the standard definition stuff beamed back to earth. It can take days or weeks to transmit the high definition stuff.

    FYI : There is supposed to be a briefing Monday, Feb. 22 @ 1pm Central/2pm Eastern that is supposed to have new video and pics from Perseverance. I'm guessing this will include the multiple-angle landing videos. You should be able to watch it here :

    No, never. It will almost always be black and white as well as grainy. The next few pics are going to be even worse -- just white.

    The original rovers could take high res pics -- the images from this new rover are going to be incredible.

    Perseverance has found an anamaoly that it can;t make any sense of. Baffled, it keeps sending photos to NASA of the gigantic white cloud over planet Houston.

    I really want NASA to get funding to send probes out to Europa or Enceladus.

    Can you imagine the feeling after spending 6 or 7 years on a project like this...the moment that rover touches down safely? It must be like winning the Super Bowl.
