OOoOOoOOOOOooOOOOoooooo oh wait i already fucking said that life on other planets would look like us

This is a science show, please use more scientifically useful measures for temperature such as C or K instead of the outdated and retarded F.

The metric system has already been accepted across the entire scientific community including in the us. This is a science channel. At least provide both.

It's 144 degree Celsius, but I agree nevertheless. Inches, feet, yards - what's that? At least provide values for European viewers too, like many youtubers already do.

I wonder what would happen to nitrogen based organisms if they came here.

They would probably need pressure suits like the volus from Mass Effect!

Curiosity has no solar panels. Just a plutonium nuclear reactor power plant. Similar to voyager. Who does this channel s research???

Unfortunately, the isotope, Plutonium-238 is very scarce. Most reactors produce Plutonium-239, which is useless in RTG's, because the decay heat is too low. Russia is the only place that (if it still does) produce Pu-238. Americium-241 would theoretically work well, but it hasn't been put into practice.

Isn't it an RTG though I guess you could call that a reactor?

We have known this for a long time. What is so new about this theory???
