You never know when you will need a good backup system. PUMA is a good system...right? :eddie2: Nice post Joe. :thumbs

 . . . There should have been a headache rack on the front of the flatbed trailer to contain forward movement of the load and prevent this type of mayhem.  

Either it wasn't present or it failed.  The former is idiocy on the part of the driver to accept the load, the latter is lawsuit time. . . :2cents

Fixed the link... 
It is badass to think we can do this across space.  I think this one was created for the first set of rovers (Spirit & Opportunity) launched because the most recent one did not use airbag & bounce method to reach the surface. It was dropped right on the wheels.

 

Check this one out for the landing of Perseverance which included actual video of the chute deploy, shield separation, and sky crane that set it down right on it's wheels.
