Mars Rover Curiosity Landing Open Thread

Welcome to tonight's Mars Rover Curiosity Landing Open Thread. Here's everything you need to know.

Live Streams
- NASA Ustream HD, mission control transmissions only (also available after the jump)
- NASA Curiosity Cam, includes commentary

Timeline (all times in Pacific Time)
8:30pm - NASA's official stream begins discussing the mission and giving updates
10:17pm - Curiosity begins landing on Mars
10:31pm - When we'll actually start to get information on whether the landing was successful

Background

Have fun tonight and let's hope for a successful landing. Remember, we'll have the stream available after the jump. I'm sure our conversation will be a lot more interesting than the Ustream chats typically are.
