Here is an incredible new video of the Mars Curiosity Rover's descent, so clear it's like you're bearing down on Mars yourself. The video is comprised of hundreds of high-definition still images beamed back by the Mars Descent Imager (MARDI) and stitched together to form a video. It seems almost too good to be true, except you can check out the original raw images here.

dlfitch, the Youtuber who made the video, adds:

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.
