Il fallait que tout se passe bien. Le 5 août 2012, l'envoi sur la planète rouge du dernier rover de la Nasa, Curiosity, a nécessité un nombre incalculable de manoeuvres. Parachuté dans l'atmosphère martienne à une vitesse deux fois supérieure à celle du son, le robot s'est doucement posé à la surface de la planète grâce à une "grue volante". Ce système unique avait été testé, mais les concepteurs de Curiosity, et le reste du monde, retenaient leur souffle en attendant de voir s'il fonctionnerait comme prévu.

L'engin spatial le plus élaboré de tous les temps, le rover Curiosity, véritable laboratoire sur roues, a coûté la bagatelle d'un milliard de dollars. Jamais un appareil de cette taille n'a été envoyé sur Mars. Le programme Curiosity est à la fois très ambitieux, très audacieux et peu conventionnel. Ce documentaire exceptionnel vous en dévoile les coulisses, aux côtés de l'équipe qui a rendu possible en 2011-2012 ce voyage de 56 millions de kilomètres qui permettra peut-être un jour de répondre enfin à cette question obsédante : la vie a-t-elle existé sur Mars ? Le rover est capable de conduire des analyses, de prendre des clichés en gros plan des roches, du sol et de la glace, de transmettre la température ambiante, la pression, l'humidité et la force du vent : une pure merveille de technologie avancée.

Genre: Jazz | Label: Origin Records

"Exploring Mars" is Josh Nelson's sixth recording as a leader, and where he ambitiously explores the Red Planet through exciting original compositions. Whimsically named after each Mars Rover - Curiosity, Opportunity, Sojourner, and Spirit - the bulk of the material features a stellar West Coast ensemble of jazz stars, including trumpeter John Daversa, guitarist Larry Koonse and trombonist Alan Ferber. Rounding out the record is a gorgeous love song featuring vocalist Kathleen Grace, a 6-piano rendition of "Mars, The Bringer of War" from Gustav Holst's orchestral suite "The Planets," and a reading from Ray Bradbury's "Martian Chronicles."

Mars has captured the human imagination for decades. Since NASA’s establishment in 1958, the space agency has looked to Mars as a compelling prize, the one place, beyond the Moon, where robotic and human exploration could converge. Remarkably successful with its roaming multi-billion-dollar robot, Curiosity, NASA’s Mars program represents one of the agency’s greatest achievements.

This past August, a NASA rover named Curiosity touched down inside Mars’s Gale crater, carrying 10 new instruments to advance the quest for signs that Mars might once have been suitable for life. With inside access to the massive team of scientists and engineers responsible for Curiosity’s on-the-ground experiments, NOVA was there for the exhilarating moments after the rover’s landing — and for the spectacular discoveries to come. As NOVA reveals the dynamic new picture of Mars that these explorers are painting, we will consider the deep questions raised by 40 years of roving Mars: How do we define life? How does life begin, and what does it need to survive? Are we alone in the universe?
