297-frame stop motion video of Curiosity's descent

Curiosity Heat Shield

The world watched as NASA put another rover on Mars. It wasn’t as much about the expedition – we’ve been to Mars before. This time, it was about the new method by which they put the rover on the planet.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labortory put together this video made of 297 images taken from Curiosity as it landed on Mars. In the beginning, we see the heat shield being released (pictured above).
