NASA releases video of Curiosity’s descent

To those of you already saturated, I’m sorry for posting so much on this. But I’ve been waiting for it for years, and NASA/JPL is really delivering the goods. There’s a hi-res version of this in the works that chief scientist Mike Malin claims “will just be exquisite.”

    I feel bad for anybody who can be saturated on this stuff.

    It’s like crack for me, though.

    Now I’ve go to go over and watch it on the good computer; the one that’s actually capable of full-screen video.
