This video from NASA shows how Curiosity will hopefully land in Mars on 6 August 2012 (6:31 UK time). It is not science fiction, nor inception. I hope all goes well.
It is turning into a thriller because we will know if the landing was successful later than expected, and of course when it has all happened already. For more information see [here](http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science- environment-18861463).
