NASA’s Latest Mars Rover – 7 Minutes of Terror – Video

Great video from NASA about the seven minutes of terror – the time between entering the Martian atmosphere and landing.

I remember when the two smaller rovers made their trip and landed on Mars. I loved watching the videos and thinking about all the math that had to go into launching something from Earth and knowing exactly what time and where these robots were going to end up some 8 months later and millions of miles away.

I hope to watch this landing with my son Chance on August 5, 2012 at 10:30 PST.
