Latter-day Saint NASA Engineer Turned YouTuber Tests if Sharks Can Smell a Drop of Blood in Viral Video

If you frequent YouTube, Mark Rober is a household name.

If you don’t, you might not know much about this NASA Engineer turned YouTuber.

Rober graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and worked at NASA for 9 years before moving on to pursue other engineering pursuits.

Oh, and he has one of the greatest side hustles of all time.

Rober is a well-established YouTube star whose channel has close to 8 million subscribers and over 880 million views. You might have seen his “Glitter Bomb” video that went viral where he pranked package thieves with a box that, when opened, activated a bomb of glitter.

In Rober’s latest video he uses his engineering skills and curiosity to test one of his greatest questions.

“I’ve always wanted to test if sharks can really smell a single drop of blood in the water from 1 mile away. So I went to the Bahamas in shark-infested waters and set up an experiment to get to the bottom of things.”

Rober’s video has amassed over 22 million views in two days and has a chance to be his highest viewed video of all-time.

As for me, I would never go in the water with sharks, not even for 22 million views.
