It is exciting to see more public science events here in Google+, it's great for #scicomm and in this context, #opengov and #openscience . Today's #Curiosity / Mars Science Laboratory #MSL landing features two major hangouts, first the one underway now by +SETI Institute from +NASA  Ames which expected over 2,1k, see <>. Then, from 8pm PDT +Fraser Cain and company expect over 3,5k in the Hangout below. Perhaps an MSL Google+ page is in order? but we digress. Watch live <> and learn more about the mission <>!
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.

+Scott Lewis 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  

(this will replace our regular Sunday night +Virtual Star Party)
