Curiosity`s Mars landing will be action movie tense
Mark August 5th 2012 down on your calendars, for that`s when the Mars Science Laboratory or Curiosity at it`s being called will either live or die.
Combine heat shields, supersonic parachutes, a rocket powered sky-crane and zero margin for error and that`s what you`re looking at getting this SUV sized rover from hitting the Martian atmosphere at thousands of miles per hour to a soft planetside landing. You want to know what "seven minutes of terror" means? Then by all means watch the video.
