NASA - Mars Rover Curiosity Landing 8/5/2012

Curiosity, the first full-fledged mobile science laboratory sent to a distant world, is scheduled to touch down inside a vast, ancient impact crater on Sunday at 10:31 p.m. Pacific time (1:31 a.m. EDT on Monday/0531 GMT on Monday). There is a 14 minute delay between Mars and earth.

NasaTV will start programming at 8:30PM PST, 11:30 EST

I am told if you have Dish or DirecTV you have the NASA channel. For the rest of us, you can view at any of the following links.

OR use VLC and open the following URL

Live Simulation. Not video but a CGI representation of what is happening in real time.
How the landing will happen.

Extreme nerd speak for how the rover will land.

I have a NASA channel on Brighthouse, but there's nothing in the Guide data about the landing. I set it to record at 1am anyway, just in case.

I have neither DirecTV or Dish so I wasn't able to confirm, but I read that the NASA TV channel was on both...

It's Channel 346 on DirecTV, however, even though they still only carry the SD feed, they moved which transponder it was on a while back, so you need an HD receiver and dish.

Phil Plait and Friends are doing coverage on Google+ as well that'll probably be worth watching: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/ba...-hangout-here/

I think I'm going to watch it on my Xbox. Though I'm not sure why they're beginning the live stream so soon. There's at least another two hours to go.

Is NASA TV on Comcast? (Didn't there used to be a way long ago you could somehow search by call letters?? I thought that was a semi-hidden thing I heard about one time, then never again..)

Also, I only read about it yesterday, that there was a watching party at NASA Ames in Sunnyvale.. Bummer, would have gone if it weren't (probably) long ago fully booked (free tickets, but limited to 5000).

It is in Houston. It's an SD channel.

Go to the Guide, hit Enter for options, at the top is search by call letters.

No NASA TV on Comcast.
It's not like Comcast would have to pay NASA for it either.

It varies by market. Here in Houston, Comcast carries NASA TV. YMMV.

If it's still available in my area, I couldn't find it. I have an actual old-school lineup card that I picked up at the office (remember those?) dated June 2012 and I don't see it there. And trying to find out anything on the website is pretty hopeless, but after I finally found the list of channels that was sorted by name, I didn't see it there.

I know we USED to have it, because I remember watching repairs on the Hubble Telescope.

You want annoying? They carry NASA TV on Time Warner Cable here. However, it's on an extra tier of programming above the "standard digital."

The one-hour documentary "Martian Mega Rover" airs tonight (Aug. 9) on the National Geographic Channel.
It is one of at least two TV specials to spotlight the 1-ton rover's exploits on Mars. (A PBS documentary airing Nov. 14 is the other.
