Re: Efficiency could be improved
It would be fascinating to see even more updates regarding Mars and this time around with clearer graphics to complement findings. We all would love to just see what life on Mars has truly got to offer. Obviously we know we would not be seeing what we all would be hoping to see which is some kind of a life form. However, we would all still be grateful should the new addition really be able to provide more visuals than what we have been fed so far.

Efficiency could be improved
Two propeller over each other is not the best solution. There is a solution available with one propeller only and a special jacket as a couter rotation element with a much better efficiency. But the idea about using a drone is certainly promissing.

Air Density and Gravity
This little guy is having to find lift in an atmosphere much less dense than Earth's. How much is that difficulty offset by Mars' reduced gravity? I will go and look up the numbers but I suspect the relationship won't necessarily be linear.

Super cool!
Thank for sharing this Steve!  What an incredible mission!  I am excited to see how the mission goes.  I sure hope they succeed and are able to send back some great photos and data!
