Mars Science Laboratory: Curiosity Landing!
Sun Aug 5 11:30pm - 1am Mon Aug 6
To cap off a fantastic weekend, join us at Bucketworks at 11:30pm Sunday to watch the live feed (starting at 12:00am) of NASA's ambitious Mars landing of Curiosity, a huge rover platform that will explore the Red Planet for signs of life. The landing is scheduled to occur at 12:30am CST, and we know it's late for a Monday morning--but this is a truly momentous occasion in space exploration. (We will have beer on hand in case of success--and liquor in case of failure.)
