Now some might not realize how tough it is to land on Mars as it is a total unlivable planet - yet i'm a bit amazed that they use another special vehicle to land the rover on Mars to go down from 200 km/hour to some sort of normal touchdown there.

That last thing with the rockets and some ropes to lower the rover looks like a vehicle from a science fiction series :)

Yet are they sure that lowering the rover on a rope below some rockets that give thrust upwards is the best idea?
