Curiosity's first full resolution descent to Mars - Amazing!

Curiosity's first full resolution descent to Mars - Amazing!

(0:50) Full-resolution version of the NASA Curiosity rover descent to Mars, taken by the MARDI descent imager. As of 20 August 2012, all but a dozen 1600x1200 frames have been uploaded from the rover, and those missing were interpolated using thumbnail data. The result was applied a heavy noise reduction, color balance, and sharpening for best visibility.
