    Those ca.50cm diameter hydraulic pistons are pretty impressive.

    They are up to some shenanigans as always after the sun sets.

    They have worked 24/7 ever since Hoppy hopped for the last time.
    Starship status and analysis.

    The person in that video has some serious issues*. But his arms are not constantly flapping. So.
    My proposal to power or empower the martian colonists is not that far off: Put a water powered Stanley Meyer car into a big (or even yuuge) hamster wheel --> attach a generator --> Win!

    You only need a small candle to liquify martian water. So bring candles, too.

    I'm so relieved you never became an engineer. I sense much suffering has been averted as a result.

    That weird Felix bloke is German. Does that help? (I assume you knew, actually.)
    He's a bit like a broken Vincent Price robot.

    He's only a repeater. And he has a picture of himself hung in the background. He does not add anything of value. He just summarizes what is already known and adds some speculation and hype.

    I prefer to watch the manly guy from scotland and the everytime pajamas nutter.

    I was not sure but he sounds like a german trying hard to sound like an americano. That in itself is the only value added to the repetition of last weeks news. I can see how you can find that aspect entertaining.

    Actually his analysis this week was quite synthetic and the best of the week I'd seen. He does quite well for a non-engineer. Scott Manley is the grounded one, relatively.

    Unrelieve yourself, then.

    That giant orange crane scares me.

    Have to watch the rest of the stream in 144p.

    The yuuge orange preying mantis still sits there... So far, it seems no humans were harmed.
    And those pistons look thicker than .5m.

    Crane porn.
