Mars Curiosity Descent – Ultra HD 30fps Smooth

On August 6th we landed Curiosity on the planet Mars. The footage that came from that descent was amazing, but left me wanting more. I wanted higher res, smooth and a decent framerate. I wanted to feel like I was making that landing.

So did Bard Canning. Apparently so much so, that he re-constructed the descent video.

Working frame-by-frame, it took me four weeks to produce this video. It was a painstaking labor of love. You can support my efforts with a donation or a message of support.

Ultra-resolution, smooth-motion, detail-enhanced, color-corrected, interpolated from the original 4 frames per second to 30 frames per second. This video plays real-time at the speed that Curiosity descended to the surface of Mars on August 6, 2012.

This video really hit it home for me. We landed on Mars. AGAIN. I thought it was cool and all when Curiosity landed, but for some reason this video made me excited about it.
