Today I will mostly be skydiving on Mars

I haven’t organised my thoughts on the (excellent) Buke & Gase EP yet, so you’ll have to bear with me, and while the Sherlock Holmes film (the second one) that I saw today wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good enough to say much about. I’ll therefore leave you with this clip by Bard Canning of what a skydiving trip to Mars would look like.

“Working frame-by-frame, it took me four weeks to produce this video. Ultra-resolution, smooth-motion, detail-enhanced, color-corrected, interpolated from the original 4 frames per second to 30 frames per second. This video plays real-time at the speed that Curiosity descended to the surface of Mars on August 6, 2012.”

This is the clip he made:


and here’s the side-by-side comparison with the original footage:
