There is a Helicopter ON MARS!



One of our Crack Team of Science Babe's has some commentary on the matter. 

"Uuuuu Laaaaa!" 



UPDATE: 
Oh.

Oops. 

Apologies to everyone who viewed the post in the first two hours that it was up.

I was surprised when I saw the "live feed", but figured that it was a test flight ,and, being quite busy today just linked the previous embed as part of a particularly perfunctory post and ran out to run errands. A few minutes ago I came back and checked for any more info and realized that there was none and then a comment by "David" which confirmed my unease. 

Thanks David.

I replaced the "live feed" with a recent video on Ingenuity.
The different embed retroactively makes the post technically correct...(the best kind of correct). 

It's rather interesting that You-Tube, the company that claims to care greatly about fact checking and  yeeted with prejudice anyone who mentioned the Hunter Biden story have let this chlickwhore stay up for (checks Youtube) WOW this has been up for THREE DAYS and it is still up. 

The previous embed is impressive and does look for all the world like an actual live stream with black and white video supplemented by color corrected video with an additional time delay. The vistas looked very much like Mars indeed, but it's completely fake. If you are very curious about the video that was previously embedded  it is here. I'd rather not give the people-shaped-colostomy-bag who posted it any clicks though. 

Again, I'm sorry. I'll strive to do better in the future.

1 First flight of the helicopter isn't planned until about two months from now, someone is scamming for views.

2 It's actually fairly common for people to exploit that "live" tag. I see it all the time with space stuff, there were "live" videos of most of the SpaceX Starship tests days after they met there "missed it by that much!" ends. I believe you can still find "live" video of Starman and his Tesla roadster. And of course youtube doesn't care, because they get the lion's share of any ad revenue generated.
