Given humanity’s sorry track record when it comes to successfully executing space missions to Mars, it would be premature to consider this a done deal, but late Sunday night (11:31 p.m. Regina time, to be precise)┬áNASA expects its $2.5 billion┬áprobe Curiosity to touch down on the Red Planet.

To drum up interest in the event, and space exploration in general, NASA will be streaming the landing live from mission control in Pasadena, California. For more information on the rover and its mission, along with a list of websites where the broadcast can be accessed, here’s a link to a CBC article.
