August 1, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

When man landed on the moon, it was a small step for Neil Armstrong, but a big leap for the humanity.

Everybody watched moon landing in handout pictures later published in the newspapers. But now, people all over the world will get a chance to watch NASA’s spaceship landing on Mars live. The mission is about to hit the target within a week from now.

According to NASA sources, the agency will broadcast the live coverage of the latest Mars Mission landing at New York’s Time Square.

Interestingly, Toshiba will be having an elated time during the landing as the screen at the Time Square belongs to the company.

The Toshiba Vision screen, located at the Time Square, will grab the title of the largest East Coast location for the pubic to view the mission which is going to be a landmark in the history of the space programs.

The Toshiba Vision Screen will fetch on the spot footage of the most advanced planetary rover NASA ever made, touching Mars. The landing is expected to take place at 1.31 am EDT on August 6.

The live coverage, according to NASA, will start from11.30 pm EDT on August 5 onwards. The agency is planning to air the live broadcast till4 am EDT the next day.

The control center of the programming will, obviously, be at the Pasadena Jet Propulsion Laboratory under NASA.

In short, Curiosity – the space rover – is going to be a star on screen. But we wonder if the broadcast will be ad-free.
