Onboard video of landing on Mars! Thanks to all the scientists and engineers who made Perseverance possible. May it give us all years of service.

We have never had video of a landing on Mars before. Any video you have seen like this before was a simulation or stitched together from still photos.

This video is so. Much. Fun!

@readsteven That was amazing!! I watched parts of it frame by frame. Which kind of defeats the point of going through all that trouble to get FMV from another planet, I suppose... Hey, I heard that there were microphones onboard. I wonder why they didn't bother laying that over after all the trouble to edit and sync up events that they did do.

@mike I did almost exactly the same thing, and felt badly about it. But there's so much more useful info in 30 frames a second vs 1 (or less) per second.

The audio is here, though SoundCloud gives me a thorough headache.
