First Images From Mars
Mars Curiosity Descent – Ultra HD 30fps Smooth-Motion
Observation by Lev Six
Any talk of space exploration in the future will always reference Curiosity’s mission to Mars and that awesome descent known as the seven minutes of terror. The fact that NASA recorded video of that descent and landing was just the icing on the cake, even though it was only four frames per second.
Ever since the original video became available to watch, talented individuals have been working to improve upon it. The first results of this enhancement were seen at the end of August when a 25 frames per second version appeared on YouTube. At the time I called it a masterpiece, but it has now been surpassed by the version you see below.
