Complete Mars Curiosity Rover Descent - Beethoven's 5th Symphony (HD)
A full-resolution version of NASA's Curiosity Rover descent to Mars set to Beethoven's 5th Symphony.
This recording was taken by the Mars Descent Imager, an instrument aboard the Curiosity Mars Rover.
As of August 20, all but a dozen 1600x1200 frames have been uploaded from the rover, and those missing were interpolated using thumbnail data.
The result was applied a heavy noise reduction, color balance, and sharpening for best visibility.
The video plays at 15fps, or 3x real time.
The heat shield impacts in the lower left frame at 0:21, and is shown enlarged at the end.
Music: Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Composed between 1804 and 1808.
