Curiousity landing on Mars Live at NASA TV and Live Hangout


Full TV Schedule for the landing
Tomorrow 10.30 AM IST, Curiosity is scheduled to land on Mars after the famous 7 minutes of terror. Looking forward to Pamela Gay and Fraser Cain hosting the Google+ hangout which will start at 8.30 AM IST. I hope everything goes right, not just because we will be able to do so many experiments in the SUV sized lab sent to mars but also because successful landing will increase the success ratio of mars landing.

You can also simulate the while landing process in 3D using NASA Solar System Eyes.
