The Mars rover Curiosity is a truly amazing feat of engineering and science. If you want to get to mars there are a lot of challenges involved never mind actually making a soft surface landing with a 1,982 pound rover. This documentary explores what it took to develop and test this rover as well as how the scientific goals were going to be achieved, from testing the parachute for conditions in the Martian atmosphere to the apparatus which would take samples from ground.
The goal of curiosity is to unlock the secrets of the red planet and give us unprecedented views of its surface, a mission which it is still performing after 730 days on the surface.
