Curiosity Landing Coverage at Google+Hangout

On August 5, 2012 at 10:31 PM PDT, the SUV-sized Mars Rover Curiosity AKA Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) lands on Mars! A spectacular feat because of special maneuvers to land such a large object successfully on Mars. You may get play-by-play of planetary exploration "Super Bowl" below the fold. Please join Bad Astronomy's Phil Plait, Fraser Cain and Pamela Gay, along with special guests for commentary leading up to touchdown!  MSL is within orbit of outer moon Deimos (14,500 miles) as of this post.  Google+Hangout is below fold to access live coverage.  Thanks goes to Universe Today for access!  Wow!
