There have been a number of Curiosity landing videos on the web lately, variations of the official versions, showing the incredible landing that the rover made about three weeks ago. Now there is another new official version, just posted on the Curiosity web site. This one is in beautiful HD colour, with audio from mission control added, as significant events occurred during the landing. It begins as before, with the heat shield separating and falling to the ground and continuing until the actual touchdown. Amazing!
