Mars Rover: Amazing Landing Footage Upgraded To 25FPS (VIDEO)

The Mars rover Curiosity has already sent back its fair share of amazing images - and it's only been on the planet for three weeks.

But perhaps the most amazing footage yet has only been compiled with the help of a willing amateur - who took the four frames-per-second clip of the rover landing on Mars and interpolated it to 25FPS.

The process involves taking lower-quality footage and using computers to 'recreate' the missing frames.

"This took me 4 days straight to put together, so I hope you enjoy it," said the YouTube user who made the video.

The result is a truly amazing clip which recreates the landing in real time, and in high-definition.

Take a look at the results, above.
