Streaming Landing of NASA’s Curiosity rover on Mars

>

This is just vaguely cord cutter related, but I’m posting it because it’s so cool.  And it does involve some streaming video that does not require a cable subscription.

Tonight at about 10:31 PDT Nasa’s new rover Curiousity is scheduled to land on the surface of Mars. Unlike previous rovers this landing is using a new fast  breaking technique described as 7 minutes of terror. This sounds incredibly risky and complicated to me, but I’m hoping for the best.

Good Luck Curiosity!

Update 8-6-12: Successfull landing. Great job NASA and JPL.
