About that Mars landing

I wrote about this just the other day. We've got an amazing Mars landing coming up this August. Here's a video that explains the ridiculously complicated landing procedure for the rover (which is named Curiosity). If this works, it will be a towering testament to the dedication and intelligence of NASA's engineers. (Hat tip to Jerry Coyne. I found the video on his blog this morning.)
