Mars Rover - Space Exhibit Reconstruction

This is very cool.  NASA's twin robot geologists, the Mars Exploration Rovers were launched toward Mars on June 10 and July 7, 2003. 

They were sent in search of answers about the history of water on the planet. The Mars Exploration Rover mission is part of NASA's Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of robotic exploration of the red planet.

The Museum of Science and Industry – Chicago (MSI) have put together this amazing film.  It interpolates animation in to footage of the landing of one of the probes on Mars to give you a real time feeling for the event as it happened.
