    The response to this video has been huge. One of our biggest videos ever. We worked our ass off on these animations. Big shout out to Mike and Eli, our stellar animators. Also big thanks to Curiosity Stream, without them we simple would not have the budget to make something this ambitious. If you liked this video, you will love that Armstrong documentary on CS. It gives me some serious goals to work towards. Packed with information and beautiful story telling.

    Something as Human at least we must feel when we try find and search with huge amount money expense on no biological existence land 1. Where no human expect to reside like SAHARA if we could increase greenery then human can reside or shift to these part of earth. 2. Many parts of hills and terrains are no man's land if we could develop these regions then new localities could be developed 3. So many islands are vacate and people would ready to either purchase and develop or make over those island for residing purpose then many part of congested places would surely become more better habitat. 4. So many prisons are full with human can be shifted or utilised these man power for development of all above areas where in return they could earn money for their loved ones. Can any expense on MARS WOULD GIVE RETURNS FOR HUMAN ON EARTH IMMEDIATELY AFTER ITS EFFORTS LIKE FARMING IF YES GO AHEAD ON MARS.
