How Curiosity Will Land On Mars

This 11-minute animation depicts key events of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission, which has launched yesterday with the land rover, Curiosity. What you will see is the Cruise Stage, Entry, Descent, Landing and the Surface Operations on Mars. The rover will take eight and a half months to reach its destination. When it lands, the robot will then scour soil and rocks for any signs that current or past environments on the planet could have or are supporting life.
