Mars Curiosity descent

This frame by frame video by Bard Canning took 4 weeks to make.

His words:

"My version uses true motion-flow interpolation at 30fps," explained Canning in an email to io9. "To my knowledge, I am the first person in the world to use utilize this method for this footage." But he didn't stop there.
