PASADENA, Calif. (CBS) -- NASA is hoping to make history Sunday night when the new rover lands on Mars and captures the first filming of a landing on another planet.
The landing is very tricky. The Curiosity rover must go from 13,000 miles per hour to a complete stop.
Experts say it will be a major technological step forward if it works.
Times Square's Toshiba Vision screen will broadcast the live landing of NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars early Monday morning,
Coverage on the big screen begins at 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, and will continue through 4 a.m. the next day.
