NASA Curiosity Rover Mars entry parachute deceleration question
Can someone please point me to a deceleration graph over the 7 minutes of terror from the 13,000 mph re-entry speed through to the parachute release and landing of the Curiosity Rover on Mars?
Thanks very much.
PS: Mods please feel free to move this topic to the appropriate forum section if necessary.

Google "curiosity landing". You should be able to find something.

You know, I also thought after reading this that it be really interesting to see a graph like that. I looked everywhere--no joy. Maybe this would be a good question to fire off to Mohawk Guy at JPL. Surely they have the data...
