Today on Far Future Horizons we present another exciting episode of the acclaimed documentary series “Mars Rising” – “Six Minutes of Terror”. William Shatner narrates this exciting series.
Mars is littered with the carcasses of crashed robotic landers and the Martian environment is very unforgiving. Historically there has been a fifty percent failure rate in all previous landings attempts.
The crew attempting the first ever landing on this alien and desolate world will find the last six minutes of their journey to be the most terrifying. Only an inflatable aeroshell and the thin ceramic skin of their capsule will protect them during their blazing entry through the Martian atmosphere. The crew must face hellish temperatures reaching four thousand degrees Celsius and a death defying plunge towards the surface at speeds reaching sixteen thousand kilometers per hour. After the capsule's speed has been slowed, the astronauts have only a minute and a half to pinpoint a safe place to land. Yet, if the first crew survives these dangers they will open a brave new world for humans to explore and conquer.
Mars Rising is available in an exciting DVD collection from Amazon.com.
