It's been awhile since we've sat in front of the TV to watch a good ol 'Mars landing.
But clear your calendar, because NASA will broadcast its InSight Mars Lander touching the Red Planet on Monday , Nov. 26 on NASA Television and its website, as well as Twitter and Facebook. The landing is expected to happen around noon PT, and we'll be broadcasting NASA's coverage of the touchdown live above starting at 11 a.m. PT.
The last time NASA broadcast a landing was six years ago, and it was made for exciting viewing: the Curiosity Rover executed ato the surface.
InSight launched May 5, and if it's successful, it will be NASA's first spacecraft to land on Mars since Curiosity in 2012. NASA says its mission is to study the "deep interior" of Mars.
Another craft set for Mars is the ExoMars rover, but it has to wait a little longer. That spacecraft is. Its mission: search for signs of life. The ExoMars program is a collaboration between the Russian space agency Roscosmos and the European Space Agency.
For everything you need to know how to watch how InSight goes on Nov. 26, head here.
