In the modern world of airtravel, pilots still play an essential role in safely flying the plane. But when it comes to flying rockets, humans have always taken a back seat, since computers are capable of getting into orbit with much more accuracy. This video compares rocket pilots to airline pilots and looks at how SpaceX’s Starship rocket will land on Mars all by iteslf.

  48. Matt Caylor

    Hands down, the best Segway into an advertisement I’ve seen!

  49. More Cowbell

    More content, less adds. Or one of those, please. You’re really pushing it with three ads in a 7 minute video.

  50. Marc Boutilier

    5:26 I did it after 3 tries

  51. Μιχ L

    Thank you, you helped me very much. I off course like everyone here had this question in mind for a long time 😂
    We are now going to have a successful landing

  52. Wellington Harris

    5:27 I did it

  53. CEBEP17

    all I heard was “audible audible blah blah”

  54. Fowl

    I thought you just skipped the frame displaying 0:00 so its actually impossible. Finding a dancing elon surprised me even more than finding out you can actually pause it.

  55. Alex Pink

    Well, I enjoyed this Audible advert. It’s a shame it was interrupted multiple times by brief and misleading sections about rocketry.

  56. Michael Malkus

  80. Rodney Johnson

  81. samhamels

  82. The Simple Animator

    Me after playing ksp and reaching duna: are you sure about that?

  89. Gergő Égerházi

    Don’t believe everyone that says they got it at 0 the first time, they’re probably lying

  90. thomaserung1

    5:27 I actually can’t belive i presses pause on 0:00 wth

  91. СССР

    After like 15 attempts 😅

  92. Death Valley Dazed

    I had a hard time determining if this video was for real or just clickbait infomercial for audiobooks. I’ll stay subscribed for now but if the clever commercial segways continue I’m outta here.

  93. Red FireStormer

    5:27 First try at 0:00 and I’m not joking
    and Second try too wtf
    Proof: there is a Dancing Elon above the dot on the falcon 9

  94. Mike234

    I have played enough KSP to, in fact, be able to pause the video at 0.00, and it only took me 7 quicksave reloads.
    Nice maracas!

  95. Mooshimoca

    2nd try and i paused exactly on 0:00, nice touch on the dancing elon

  96. Simply Space

    Great video but the audible ad in the middle was quite jarring.

  97. DenshiVideo

    Hmm, you might want to reconsider after playing KSP.
    edit: Primal changed the title so I make less sense now.
    edit 2: I just noticed it was uploaded on 9/11, I guess that was why the title was changed?

  98. Dariepearjuicy

    5:22 “You can’t”, annnnnnndd I just did. On the first try…. My rocket pilots license plz

  99. PixelRayn

    I like the dancing Elon at 0:00 on your timer (5:26)
    Edit: Yeah, I just hit it on real time by sheer (?) luck.

  100. The Rocket Kid

    Just like you can’t pause this video when the timer hits 0
    Everyone: Proceeds to pause at 0 without trying
