For all the hype about the Mars Rover landing and 15 minutes of terror and all, the actual images of the Mars landing were somewhat meh. The main thing I remember was people in the NASA command room celebrating, but they don’t even wear ties or geeky glasses or smoke nervously anymore. Then they released a video of the landing, which sucked. Thankfully, however, filmmaker Bard Canning has made it smooth, HD and added sound. As you can watch above.
I recommend turning the HD on (the settings button, the gear) and watching in full res. It’s pretty impressive. For more about the story of the monthlong re-edit, check out Slate.
