    Earth has carbon-based Life because of a fluke with the collision giving it a spin. There's a competing theory involving an old guy with a long beard that I'll detail some other time.

    It would be so much easier to save our own planet all the propaganda is our planets dying so spend twice the recouses saving another completely dead one? WHy do people even watch this.

  • Ross Payne

    not very well thought out, they would retrace each others tracks. You even make a point of how blue follows orange... but no trace of tracks???
    ALso few things like instant seed growth? The bots wouldn't choose a planet being bombarded? If they were sent from another planet surely the tech would show meteors (asteroids) and therefore the danger of meteoroids?

    They are called Blue and Dirty, an A.I. robot couple, sent in a one way ticket to find a similar planet than ours to initiate the process of a possible colonization ... they are self compounded by nanotechnology and have a regenerative solar batery for life. Blue is the female who carries all samples and is always ready to save the mission. Dirty, on the other hand, is the male who constantly jeopardise the mission with his curiosity and daredevil attitude ... but he's all over for her.

    Simple solution to meteor danger: build mobile farms on tracks that continuously move a away from projected impact areas. lol. but where is water? Clouds = Rain? Not from the looks of the landscape. Must have another video that answers these questions. Like Game of Thrones, only not as horny or violent...

    We are self influencing each others with such themes. why is there never a science fiction movie where humans learned to respect their home planet instead of searching for another one to destroy?

    How would droids that advanced not have location trackers?

    • 3DPDK
      3DPDK Month ago +1

      @Korance G That would be entirely possible; or a homing radio signal and directional receiver would be the most efficient and compact to include in a small drone's chassis. Hay, this is science fiction, right? How about a directional sensor that would trigger on the other drone's nuclear energy source :) It worked for Star Trek.

      @3DPDK If not GPS like radar or something

    • 3DPDK
      3DPDK Month ago

      GPS requires a network of satellites orbiting the planet (GPS = Global Positioning Satellite or System) and a ground team constantly updating positional data and chronological corrections to the satellites. There are currently 24 (civil or public) GPS satellites that tell your phone or tracking device where it is located on the Earth, then your phone can relay that information to what ever other device may be asking for a location. On a distant, unexplored planet there would be no satellite network - at least not until it was decided to colonize the planet.

    Okay, the robots are cute, but the plot needs a lot of work. You can't have an 8 minute video where the end result is known in the first 2:30. Scale it up to 1 hour. An audience isn't going to sit for 60 minutes to see what they knew was going to happen in the first 20 minutes. No suspense. No surprises. No sale.

    Great story and not to nit-pick but the written prologue has some issues:
    1) At the end of THE 21st century (minor grammatical error)
    2) Mankind WAS facing global resource depletion (again, minor grammatical error)
    3) Space rovers were sent out to find potential HABITABLE planets (why would you want and INhabitable planet?)
    Other than that - nicely done.
