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.
