    new images of Gale Crater and Curiosity’s landing spot.

    For the far left photo, here’s the notes from NASA-“This color-enhanced view — taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter as the satellite flew overhead — shows the terrain around the rover’s landing site within Gale Crater on Mars. Colors were enhanced to bring out subtle differences, showing that the landing region is not as colorful as regions to the south, closer to Mount Sharp, where Curiosity will eventually explore. In reality, the blue colors are more gray.

    The rover itself is seen as the circular object, with the blast pattern from its descent stage seen as relatively blue colors.”

  5. The @Curiosity Mars Descent Imager (MARDI) captured the rover’s descent to the surface of the Red Planet. The instrument shot 4 fps video from heatshield separation to the ground.

  7. Not impressed with JPL’s Mars landing? Well this should convince you otherwise. It is absolutely incredible what these people accomplished. And put the extreme degree of difficulty aside, NASA did it with bare bones funding. Thanks US Government.
