    Default Insight Scheduled for Mars Touchdown on Monday



    NASA Brings Mars Landing, First in Six Years, to Viewers Everywhere Nov. 26: https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/n...rywhere-nov-26.

    - NASA's InSight lander is scheduled to touch down on Mars at approximately 3 p.m. EST Nov. 26, and viewers can watch coverage of the event live on several platforms

    - The landing will kick off a two-year mission in which InSight will become the first spacecraft to study Mars' deep interior

    Should be worth watching!

    8pm/20:00 GMT. Although I think the NASA TV thing kicks off at 7pm/19:00 hrs GMT.

    'Join us beginning at 2 p.m. EST (7 p.m. UTC) on Monday, Nov. 26 from mission control at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory for live coverage of the InSight Mars landing.'
