Has to be one the best videos from JPL I've EVER Seen.
It literally just topped my chart.

Very impressive video, the whole concept of the landing process looks like something out a movie, would be amazing to see it land as a bistander.

Really hoping it goes without a hitch!

Very exaggerated with that kind of soundtrack, but still nice

No not quite exaggerated.
Perhaps few can appreciate the suspense of a decade of work launch and transit culminating into a do or die moment on atmospheric interface, but I see it as nothing more than exhilarating...perhaps even heart stopping. It's the end of a journey one way or another but the beginning of mission if it succeeds.

This is a profession. This is where millions of Dollars, thousands of hours or meticulous planning and scheduling come to fruition.
