NASA's rover Curiosity is scheduled to touch down on Mars at 1:30am EDT on Monday, 8/6 (the wee hours!). Join a gang of enthusiastic Radiolab producers and space-loving special guests, who are all staying up late Sunday night (and into Monday morning) to track the rover's progress.
We'll be hosting a Google Hangout On Air (our first ever!), which you can watch on our brand-new Google+ page, our YouTube channel, or right here on radiolab.org. We're planning to kick things off at 11:30pm EDT on Sunday, and continue until we hear word from NASA on the rover's official arrival.
The online festivities will include visits from:
We'll also fire up a live chat here on the blog, so you can chime in and say hi throughout the evening.
We'll add more details as we get closer to Sunday night, but in the meantime, let the countdown begin!
