Live Tonight: Curiosity vs Martian Atmosphere

Watch live streaming video from spaceflightnow at

Tonight is the big night, with this years match-up between NASA's Mars Science Laboratory rover Curiosity against the Martian atmosphere at 1:31 AM EST on NASA TV.

This video and previous attempts to simulate aircraft for Mars may help explain the insane Rube Goldberg landing system. Obviously, this system should also help Curiosity fly past the Martian defence network.
