    Here is a youtube vid of the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars last week.

    The clarity of the images are amazing, from the heat shield falling away to the retro-rockets of the Skycrane blowing Martian dust around just before touchdown.:cool: Enjoy!

    Here's an even better, more complete and higher resolution video of Curiosity's Mars landing.:)

    At the end you can even see the impact of its heat shield. Wow!:cool:
