Land on Mars with a Sky Crane!
Here's an amazing new animation of NASA’s new Mars rover, the Mars Science Laboratory, on its trip to the surface of the red planet. One super cool thing about this mission is the way the rover will be lowered to the surface on a "sky crane". Wow, just like something out of Thunderbirds!
