This is the longer 11 minute version of the Curiosity Rover Animation video:

The detail and sound effects are pretty amazing... (recommend watching it in full screen)



This 11-minute animation depicts key events of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission, which will launch in late 2011 and land a rover, Curiosity, on Mars in August 2012. A shorter 4-minute version of this animation, with narration, is also available on our youtube page.

It's all about getting public sentiment on their side. They want future funding for their missions as you said. Does this mission even really exist? How would we know if we were conned? Even their own scientists wouldn't know. If it crashes there is another rover somewhere in the desert to link to. Nobody will know until some lizard decides to climb on the rover. Did they need to spend a couple of billion on this program, question the whole thing and not just the inflated costs?


start a thread about any fake landing or conspiracy related subjects. this thread is for the actual landing of curiostiy.

I can't agree with you more. Quite depressing when all that people care about is "You see Tony Stewart hit the wall yesterday?" or "I had to crawl under the house this weekend and fix a water leak."

People are so mundane.


that is what would have made living during the actual moon landing so awesome.
the whole world gave a crap!

i would have cried to witness that live.

its going perfect really. they had a chance a couple hours ago to make any last second adjustments for its trajectory but its on such a perfect course they just let it be.

Nearly as nervous as I was last night waiting for Bolt to win the 100 meters!
Let's hope this goes as well to plan.
Fingers and all else crossed.
Go Curiosity

If that is true..

then what the heck are we supposed to be watching the live link for????



tonight isnt about seeing all the amazing pictures right away. its about seeing that one picture that shows its on the ground. mostly its about knowing we just landed a sweet robot on mars.

its a two year mission we will see tons of amazing video and pictures over time.

i cant wait to see the cheers.

Yeah. What did they say, there's only 500 kilobits (or was it bytes? Can't remember) of bandwidth, and essentially all of it is going to be devoted to thermal info during descent?

i'm in the uk, and woke up naturally at 5am to get up and watch this, i hope it's the groundbreaking affair that it should be.

i can't help wondering what would happen if it were our planet that something from another planet is about to land on, whether there would be people there to watch it touch down and see what it does.

i truly hope we get the genuine pics, undoctored in ANY way, and that we finally get some proper answers about mars and its history.


33 odd mins to go!
