The new video is of the Curiosity rover, scheduled to land on Mars on the night of Aug. 5. The rover will go tearing into the Martian atmosphere and, engineers hope, land safely on the surface seven minutes later.
NASA made the computer-animated video of the landing sequence, and found it has a hit on its hands. With almost a month to go until landing, the video has been viewed more than half a million times on YouTube alone, and it's appeared on countless other websites as well.
