YouTube Saturday - Curiosity Decent

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past few weeks you will of course know that NASA's latest mission to Mars, the Curiosity Rover, made a safe touch down recently. New video footage has been released of the final decent of the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), taken by the MARDI descent imager, which shows the fall in high definition. The item falling to the left of the screen is the protective heat shield. I love this!
