Watch: Mars rover Curiosity's descent to the surface

(CBS News) Since landing on the surface of Mars on August 6, NASA's Curiosity rover has undergone a battery of tests and even taken its first drive on the Red Planet. But, for now at least, the most impressive accomplishment for Curiosity and the NASA team has been the landing. And now you can watch it for yourself.

YouTube user dlfitch strung together images from the Mars Descent Imager (MARDI) to create this video of NASA's incredible accomplishment. In high-definition even! Science is truly a wonderful thing.
