Curiosity’s Seven Minutes of Terror

Note: Curiosity is a Mars rover launched by NASA on November 26, 2011. Currently en route to the planet, it is scheduled to land in Gale Crater on August 5, 2012 ( US Pacific time) . The rover’s objectives include searching for past or present life, studying the Martian climate, studying Martian geology, and collecting data for a future manned mission to Mars. It will explore Mars for 2 years.

“Thanks for the video and explaining the landing procedure. I was wondering why the NASA group was unusually excited when Curiosity landed..tears, lots of hugs and handshaking..a huge sigh of relief. This explains why.”
