Huge Mars Rover Set for Nerve-Wracking Landing on Red Planet Today
After 8 1/2 months crossing the millions of miles between planets, the biggest and most complex rover ever sent to another world is now on its final approach for a hair-raising touchdown on Mars.

NASA's 1-ton Curiosity rover is set to land inside the Red Planet's Gale Crater at 10:31 p.m. PDT tonight (Aug. 5; 1:31 a.m. EDT and 0531 GMT on Aug. 6). As with any planetary landing, success is not a given, and tensions may be especially high tonight given Curiosity's elaborate, unprecedented landing sequence.

The rover's spacecraft will barrel into the Martian atmosphere at 13,000 mph (21,000 kph), then deploy a huge supersonic parachute to slow it to about 200 mph (320 kph). Rockets will slow the vehicle's descent further, to less than 2 mph (3.2 kph), setting the stage for a spectacular "sky crane" maneuver.

People are that stupid to believe that NASA is going to transmit a live broadcast of a rover landing on Gale Crater with hi-res cameras??? rofl

You better believe what you're going to see is a fake landing rendered with top notch Hollywood FX. At least during most part of the broadcast, and people won't tell the fucking difference. If I'm not mistaken they used hi-res real database of NASA Mars Reconnaissance for rendering the landscape seen in "John Carter" and that's a fucking creepy real-like shit. If they fake the whole landing in 3D, the sheeple still gonna call NASA and send congrats tweets.



You think you're gonna see a real landing?? You won't!!

It can't communicate directly with Earth because we will be below mars horizon. Think it will be a delayed signal. So undercoveralien is correct in that sense.

I hear the delay will be 12 minutes. That'll probably be the longest 12 minutes ever for the NASA waiting to see if it worked.

What I'd really like to know though is, what's the point of having a Rover on the ground milling around when the surface is covered with a millennia of dust many metres deep. How can you tell what's there under the dirt unless you drill down?

I think it can be done, It's all in the control software.

Look at what "John Carmack" writer of the game "Doom" managed to create with his private company, employing only a handful of good people.

This video is not reversed at any part, his rocket goes up and then comes down landing on the same spot.

I think after touchdown it will drive up the base of the crater and do a bit of poking around for different minerals.

After 7 minutes of terror landing, the NASA photoshoppers will undergo 2yrs of terror. They'll be scrubbing hi-res images by the truckload. The cameras on this rover can read the fine security text print on a $1 note from 10ft away.
