Curiosity's Seven Minutes of Terror

Engineers who designed the entry, descent and landing system for NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity candidly talk about the new landing system, and describe the challenges of Curiosity’s final moments before touchdown on Aug. 5, 2012, at 10:31pm PDT. (Landing takes place about 14 minutes earlier due to the communications delay.)
