    Was clear to me this was fake from the moment I heard the name "Mars", don't you sheeples know that "Mars" is the name of the Roman god of war? Not sure what you guys are smoking but maybe apply some astro logic and try calculating how incredibly unlikely it is that both a Roman god and a "planet" both pick the same name from all the possible names there are. It's real low.

    Really? It went boom? How sad, but then I thought it was going to tip over. It hit pretty hard for a soft landing and was clearly leaning.
    Regardless, that was awesome! And that flip after turning on engines... sweet mother of god! Has to be one of the coolest shots I've ever seen, fucking unreal!!!

    I was watching this on the NASASpaceflight live stream on YT. They are very entertaining so worth a watch if you haven't come across them yet. As they didn't stop broadcasting you got to see the second launch as the fire from the landing finally reached the methane tank.

    The "soft" landing was a bit on the hard side, unknown if all/any of the landing legs even deployed. They are being revised to a new design according to a comment from Elon Musk.

    Bring in SN11!

    Current thinking (until Elon gives official stance) is that we saw legs clearly not lock into place, causing a hard landing on the skirt and the structure, a bounce was visible. External fires were visible and put down but there was likely an internal methane leak that eventually ignited.

    Either they spent much more fuel landing or just leaked fuel ignited since you can clearly see must of the vehicle shooting upwards (and not disintegrating in one big explosion)

    It there were pilots on top and had 0,0 ejection seats and fireproof suits, it would have counted as a landing you can walk off from .

    The force of which it explodes upwards makes the segment between rocket and cone crumble in an instant. That is some serious energy in play.

    BTW, if you don't know Perseverance' Twitter account, it's worth a follow. Whoever runs it, does a brilliant job.
