JPL will be live, streaming, and maybe also the TV will deign to cover it. One buddy is shooting it (with a camera). Another one is a geophysicist on the project. Small town, L.A..

Basically they're decelerating from 12500 MPH to 5 MPH, shedding something that vaguely resembles an Apollo capsule, deploying legs, and soft landing on another planet in a period of 7 minutes.

This oughta be good.

It's at JPL. They're about to pass around the lucky peanuts. Right now they have a guy diagramming entry descent and landing.

Yes, it has full audio.

Remember that nothing happens in real time, due to extreme radio signal delays. Something like 8 minutes one-way at present.

Click the speaker icon a couple of times, that usually restores it.

No, landing is around 12 pacific though it'll be a while to confirm anything.

The official NASA feed has a PR lady at JPL who has a continuous chatter going. Right now she's interviewing someone associated with the geological instrumentation.

I think some of the first photos from the lander are starting to come back.

I also think they've found some dude stuck there, growing potatoes in his own poop.

I kid, people, I kid. :D

Laws of physics, Lib. It's honestly true ... video or radio signals transmitted from Mars take 8 minutes to reach Earth.

That means if poor Matt Damon was facing some life threatening situation and asked NASA a question ... he would have to wait 8 minutes to get back the answer. (*)

Assuming they answered right away. :D

(*) Technically ... 16 ... 8 minutes each way. :D

Yes, but I meant are there to be actual videos we can watch or will it be only photos? Have you seen any video? I had the channel up but lost it now
