NASA said: “During landing, the rover plunges through the thin Martian atmosphere, with the heat shield first, at a speed of over 12,000mph (about 20,000kph).

“A parachute and powered descent slow the rover down to about 2mph (three-fourths of a metre per second).

“A large sky crane then lowers the rover on three bridle cords to land softly on six wheels.
