The Mars Science Laboratory, Curiosity, sets down on Mars -- a collection of various NASA animation, telemetry data, onboard vehicle instrumentation, incident audio, and JPL footage, set to music and embellished with narration from those NASA/JPL leaders most responsible for transforming one of the most complex engineering feats the agency has ever attempted into one of its proudest, finest hours. I was at JPL on this night, and I was compelled to produce something that approximated my experiences. Closing narration includes NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, John Holdren, Senior Science Advisor to President Obama, Charles Elachi, Director of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Adam Steltzner, MSL Mechanical Systems Lead.
FOOTAGE: All footage courtesy of NASA and JPL-Caltech.
AUDIO: "Outlands, Pt. I & II," from the motion picture "Tron: Legacy," by Daft Punk.
