I Could Watch This 1,735 More Times

This video first came from NASA, and it was awesome to watch the Curiosity Rover landing on Mars, but this one comes from a fan and he has painstakingly pieced together all of the individual shots and enhanced it into a real-time HD version…  Bard Canning is his name, and he’s gifted us with this beauty.

Ultra-resolution, smooth-motion, detail-enhanced, color-corrected, interpolated from the original 4 frames per second to 30 frames per second. This video plays real-time at the speed that Curiosity descended to the surface of Mars on August 6, 2012.

People.  This is not computer graphics.  This is Mars.   1000’s of individual pics pieced together to show a human built machine, landing on Mars.

And you are watching it.  Seriously wrap your head in duct tape before it blows while watching.
