Film critic and film maker Brandon Fibbs used JPL animations and actual footage from the Curiosity rover to create an inspiring video called Dare Mighty Things:
Productions like this are great. And what I love about the sentiment is that it's true. This isn't propaganda, it isn't pablum that sounds good but is empty of actual content, and it isn't hyperbole. It is, simply, true. The proof is in the video itself: we have a one-ton nuclear-powered chemistry lab on the surface of Mars.
When we dare mighty things, we achieve mighty things.
