Why Humans Are So Focused on Landing on the Surface Mars

Vsauce3 host Jake Roper explains why humans are so focused on landing on the surface of Mars. The goal is nothing new, with references to humans landing on the Red Planet in literature that date back centuries. Roper explains why it’s Mars specifically that has captured humanity’s interest rather than another planet like Venus.

Roper’s video is one of three across all the Vsauce channels that tackle a different aspect of landing humans on Mars.
