VIDEO: NASA’s 'Curiosity' Rover Makes Historic Landing on Mars
NASA’s ‘Curiosity’ rover made history when it landed on Mars overnight. It went through what NASA calls “7 minutes of terror.” The nerve-wracking process of descending onto the Red Planet was all caught on camera by another satellite. Within minutes, Curiosity beamed back the first pictures from inside the crater it landed in.
