Get excited: The Mars rover landing will be live on Ustream

With the Mars Rover scheduled to make its historic landing on the red planet on August 5, we’re in a total space frenzy. And thanks to our partnership with the space junkies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (that’s JPL for short) we’re excited to offer a series of live events, tweetups, and chats leading up to the big landing!

About the mission: The dune buggy-sized Curiosity has been in transit since it launched in November of 2011. Once it lands, it will be able to collect and record valuable information about the rocks and soil of Mars that could help us understand whether the atmosphere ever supported microbial life. Yes, this means we may finally be able to answer David Bowie’s age-old question: Is there life on Mars?

Be sure to RSVP for these events on the NASA JPL channel here: http://www.ustream.tv/nasajpl.
