@MikeonMain: Thank you for the linkage. I'll also be participating on a Google+ hangout that will be providing commentary and coverage so I am very prepared for this to go down.
@Uber_CDN: Yeah the video is just incredible. To think of all the complexities of a thing such as Curiosity. All the hard work that went into designing and developing it - very impressive stuff!
@mplsmike: Where will you be able to watch it on real time? As I understand NASA's coverage will be done through a little time delay - so it's not really LIVE coverage. Mind posting a link?
I am also hoping that the landing is a complete success. I may not be an astronomer but events like these don't happen often so taking part in it is such a wonderful feeling. Let's keep our fingers crossed, everyone
Meanwhile, here's a video of NASA's Social. They go in dept on what the successful landing of Curiosity will mean for science and NASA, and why they explain why they place such a focus on Mars to begin with. It is a bit lengthy but it is very inspiring. Video streaming by Ustream
