The Norwegians have a concept called slow TV. It takes a bit of getting used to. Basically it’s a reaction to commercial TV and just focuses on less frenetic programming.
Like this train ride, for example. That’s all it is: a camera mounted on the front of a train.
Sometimes it’s sweater knitting. Communal sweater knitting.
When you think about it, maybe it’s it’s not really that different from PBS.
Anyway, we mention it because our YouTube Gold today is, well, gonna be kind of slow - at least for part of the day.
That’s because it’s a live feed for NASA’s Perserverance Mars Rover Mission Landing, scheduled for Thursday.
There may be some events during the day but basically it’s on countdown until the craft touches down.
This is a pretty complex plan as you’ll see in this animation.
Needless to say, the rover will feature the latest technologies. And coming soon: the first drone on Mars.
