Watch the Mars Rover landing live!
This answers my question from a previous post (see that one here).
YES we will be able to see this landing live. If you are in NY you can just head down to Time Square and watch it.
No matter where you are you can watch it LIVE from home on NASA TV here.
If you are anywhere else do fret, there are plenty of place you can watch it with your nerdy friends…me included!

Other sites around the country, including many of the NASA centers, also will host live viewing events for the landing, which is NASA’s most ambitious and expensive planetary mission on the horizon.

NASA’s webcast of the entire Mars rover Curiosity landing will begin at Aug. 5 at 11:30 p.m. EDT (0330 Aug. 6 GMT) on NASA TV here.
The broadcast begins at 11:30 p.m. EDT Sunday night and runs until 4 a.m. EDT Monday morning. The exact time of landing is scheduled for 1:31 a.m. EDT Monday, though it will be late Monday night at the rover’s California-based mission control room.
“In the city that never sleeps, the historic Times Square will be the place for New Yorkers to participate in this historic landing,” John Grunsfeld, NASA’s associate administrator for science missions, said in a statement Tuesday. “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.” [Mars Rover's Nail-Biting Landing in Pictures ]
