In November 2011, NASA launched Curiosity, a Mars rover, that is going to land on Mars surface on August 6, 2012. NASA’s most advanced planetary rover, Curiosity, will take 7 minutes to land from atmosphere to the surface of Mars. Experts have called this 7 minutes of time as ‘Seven Minutes Of Terror.’ In fact, the success of this mission totally depends on this 7 minutes. And, NASA has decided to broadcast the live mission coverage of Curiosity at the Toshiba Vision dual LED screens in New York City’s Times Square. Not just the “seven minutes of terror”, but the whole event.

NASA’s Curiosity will land on the Martian surface at 1:31 a.m. EDT (0531 GMT) on August 6, 2012. But, the Toshiba Vision screen, located just below the world-famous New Year’s Eve ball in New York City’s Times Square will start to broadcast the NASA TV coverage from Sunday 11:30 p.m. EDT of August 5. And it will keep broadcasting the NASA TV coverage till Monday 4 a.m. EDT of August 6.

Times Square

John Grunsfeld, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate said, “In the city that never sleeps, the historic Times Square will be the place for New Yorkers to participate in this historic landing. When you think of all the big news events in history, you think of Times Square, and I can think of no better venue to celebrate this news-making event on Mars.”

Eddie Temistokle, senior manager of corporate communications and corporate social responsibility for Toshiba America Inc said, “We’re pleased the Toshiba Vision screens will offer a unique view of this great scientific achievement, the landing of the rover Curiosity on Mars.”

On the spot viewers at Times Square and other listeners around the world can hear the live commentary by tuning in to the online radio station Third Rock Radio. This is the first time Third Rock Radio will provide live coverage of a NASA event. Third Rock Radio can be streamed on smart phones and tablets through the Tuneln mobile app.

Enthusiast who won’t be in New York, can also view the landing online at the NASA Television.
