New Yorkers and those visiting Times Square will get a front row seat to the Mars landing of the Curiosity rover, as the Toshiba Vision screen broadcasts live mission coverage.
The new Mars rover will be arriving on the Martian surface at 1:31 a.m. EST on August 6.
[color=D4F0C9]The NASA TV broadcast will start at 11:30 p.m. eastern time on August 5, and continue through 4:00 a.m. eastern time the next day.
NASA has said that landing the rover on the Red Planet is not a guaranteed task, but instead is going to be a nail biting experience.
Times Square visitors will be able to hear the audio portion of NASA’s coverage by tuning into the online radio station Third Rock Radio.
Times Square isn’t the only place viewers can have the opportunity to watch the landing. NASA centers around the country will be open for landing events, and many science centers also are opening for events focused on the landing.

Can you give me a slight info on what's behind the link?
Apparently NASA is planing on streaming live the Curiosity landing on Mars
Technically it will not be LIVE, since there will be a 14 minute delay between transmission and reception of the signals.
Hm...now you got me confused...I thought the stream will be of the rover it self from one of it's cameras? Don't care about the guys in the control room...can you confirm what exactly will be viewed?
The cameras will be safely stowed to protect them during atmospheric entry
