BUCKLE UP! CURIOSITY LANDS IN A FEW HOURS!!!

Remember my post about Mars back in June? About how right now there's a really amazing Mars rover hurtling towards the Red Planet at 13,000 miles per hour? And about how it's going to utilize a totally remarkable landing system to safely lower the rover to the ground? And about how there's going to be a seven minute delay between when the spacecraft starts entering the Martian atmosphere and when we here on Earth get news the fancy machine's progress. Did it work? Or did NASA just lose a lot of money on what ultimately ends up being a big firework show for the Martians?

Well we all find out tonight. Watch it live here:

For the record: my money's on NASA....
