Curiosity About the Breathtaking “Mars Curiosity Descent” Video?

The Mars Curiosity Rover has turned out to be one of the most significant cultural events of the year, from its breathtaking landing to its even more poignant images of the stark landscape, lovely sun, and Earth appearing as a large star.

Did I mention the breathtaking landing?

A videographer knitted together thousands of video snippets to put together a pretty cohesive view of the landing from the rover’s perspective. The first video shows his results. The second video shows something about what it took to put this together, and how he did it. If you’re curious . . .

Happy Friday!
