The Complete Mars Science Lab Descent in HD Video

 

            

 

This is a full-resolution version of the NASA Curiosity rover descent to Mars, taken by the MARDI descent imager. As of August 20, all but a dozen 1600x1200 frames have been uploaded from the rover, and those missing were interpolated using thumbnail data. The result was applied a heavy noise reduction, color balance, and sharpening for best visibility. The heat shield impacts in the lower left frame at 0:21, and is shown enlarged at the end of the video.
