It is ussually much better here to submit one of the videos instead of the channel. With one video the discussion is more specific and perhaps someone here that works in that are can make an interesting comment. With the whole channel the discussion get diluted.

Which one one of the videos is the one that you prefer? (I liked the animations in the video about mars. They start at the 4 minute mark.)

Good point. I prefer the one about the Viking lander since it still fresh in my mind. It's interesting that no other lander/rover has carried out experiments to test for life on mars since Viking in 1976. It seems like the only people that are promoting life on mars are the scientist that worked on the experiment that did detect evidence of life

I think they only detected some inorganic reactive material, produced by sunlight. But until we carry more detailed experiments it's difficult to be sure.

Anyway, since you have a few old videos, I recommend to post once per week so people don't complain that you post too much. And then post the new videos when they are published.

Also, people here is sometimes interested in how things are made. What program are you using to create the animations? What program are you using to create the videos?

Cool. I use Hitfilm Pro for editing and animation. Blender for 3d rendering. Godot game engine for simulation.

I have a channel that goes into moderate detail about how various instruments of a spacecraft works. Each video has some basic simulation of the device being discussed. There are also other videos discussing other aspects of space.
