To celebrate the landing of NASA's Curiosity Rover - the Mars Science Laboratory - we'll be running a special live hangout.
In conjunction with +CosmoQuest
. We'll have all your favorite space/astronomy journalists on hand to discuss the mission in depth, and celebrate the landing live, when it happens. Join Fraser Cain, +Pamela Gay
, +Philip Plait
and +Miles O'Brien
for this special event.
Over the course of this 4-hour Google+ Hangout on Air, we'll interview members of the Curiosity team live in the hangout, as well as other special guests from the +The Planetary Society
and the +SETI Institute
and +Amy Shira Teitel
will be on location at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to interview members of the engineering team, and show you what it's like to be at NASA during this amazing moment.
We'll update this event as we lock down more of the guests and participants. See you there! You can follow the hashtag #marshangout
