A YouTube user spent four days creating this two minute video showing NASA’s ¬†Mars Curiosity Rover descending to the surface of the Red Planet. This historic landing was part of the Mars Science Laboratory mission, which might help NASA plan a human exploration of Mars in the future.

Apparently, the YouTuber somehow enhanced the footage supplied by NASA, because he says about this clip: “…footage interpolated from ~4 frames per second to 25 frames per second.” He also points out that the clip shows the descent in “real time”.¬†

Honestly, even if you’re like me and have no idea what “interpolated” means, it doesn’t matter. Just put this clip on full-screen and be amazed.
