Curiosity Rover Trailer

NASA’s new Mars rover, called Curiosity, launches this November, and like before, they’ve produced a nice trailer about it, mostly focusing on the landing.

 

That multi-stage landing mechanism worries me, having lots of failure points.  But the last three landers touched down on Mars without a hitch, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
