On August 5th, the Curiosity Rover will attempt to successfully land on Mars. The rover, the size of a small SUV, will use a variety of first-time engineering feats to successfully land on the planet. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena has released an animated video about the landing that is being called the “7 minutes of terror”.
