Fly With Curiosity

Hey Space Placers!

Less than two days to go until we know if Curiosity made a successful touchdown at Gale Crater. Here is a great computer simulation set up by NASA called "Eyes on the Solar System" that gives us a fly along view of Curiosity while showing her speed and distance to go in real time.

You can also go through EDL - Entry-Descent-Landing - and see what the changes are to the spacecraft as she goes through the "7 Minutes of Terror".

Here is the web link

Enjoy the ride and the view!
