Curiosity is scheduled to land in the Red Planet's Gale Crater late Sunday or very, very early Monday, depending on your Earthbound time zone. Confirmation of the landing should come at about 10:31 p.m. PT Sunday for folks on the U.S. West Coast, or 1:31 a.m. ET Monday for those on the East Coast. The rover will have actually touched down before that, but there's a 14-minute communications lag time for signals traveling the 154 million miles from Mars.

The space agency will begin its live coverage Sunday evening at 8:30 p.m. PT / 10:30 p.m. ET on the NASA TV site and will also show the coverage via UStream:

Thanks for this, this could well be the most important mission in NASA's entire history so far.

Yeah, I was shocked at just how big the lander is,

and how complex this landing will be.

Then that crane drop flies away and crashes somewhere else.

Wow.

Fingers crossed.

Hope they capture it all in HD. :cheers:
