Where to land Curiosity?

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory made a sequence of videos demonstrating the difficulty of getting to Mars. We wanted to share them with you in anticipation of the Mars Science Laboratory’s “Curiosity” rover landing that is scheduled to happen late in the evening on Sunday, August 5.

In this video, NASA scientists explain the difficulty of finding a landing site.

All successful journeys begin by first figuring out where you’re going.
