Curiosity Robotic Rover landing on Mars in HD
Real-time speed high-resolution, smooth-motion video showing robotic rover landing to the surface of Mars.
This is a real-time speed video showing robotic rover Curiosity landing to the surface of Mars in Gale Crater on August 6, 2012. Motion graphics expert Bard Canning spent four, long weeks enhancing NASA’s original footage frame by frame to show the iconic landing in real time.
Thanks to his titanic work we can enjoy high-resolution, smooth-motion, detail-enhanced, color-corrected, interpolated from the original 4 frames per second to 30 frames per second.
Curiosity rover’s goals include: investigation of the Martian climate and geology; whether Mars ever supported life, including investigation of the role of water; and planetary habitability studies in preparation for future human exploration.
