Curiosity While Landing On Mars

Curiosity slowed down its speed from over 13000 mph to 0 mph before landing. When its speed was 900 mph, a supersonic parachute was deployed. Later, the rover was separated from the parachute, 8 rocket engines took it close to the surface of Mars, and when it was about 60 feet above the surface, a “sky-crane” took it to the Red Planet. Here is an animation video, how it landed on Mars.

The landing of Mars rover Curiosity was shown at Times Square live.

Now, NASA people are busy in giving interviews. You can see the live coverage from SpaceflightNow.
