Ummm... reading the comments: seriously?! NASA has just achieved one of the greatest technical feats of our lifetimes--successfully landing a car-sized probe on a planet 35 million miles away--a planet that is notoriously difficult to get a probe on in one piece--and watching the *high-definition video* of the landing, some of you are complaining about the *sound effects*? Tough crowd. I expect when the high-def video of the first settlers to the planet is returned, you'll be complaining that the spacesuits make the astronauts look fat.

Unlike the Moon, Mars has an atmosphere through which sound travels. The sound effects here aren`t over the top and serve the purpose of informing the viewer what stage of the landing sequence it is that we`re watching: free descent, parachute, retro rockets, or sky crane.

Wow, great, sound effects. Because they didn't even carry a microphone on this payload. So no attempt at reproducing the sound of this thin atmosphere, just sound effects. That will get more people interested in science. The end always justifies the means.
