NASA TV is covering the Mars Perseverance lander landing on Mars this afternoon.  This is the largest, most complex spacecraft ever sent to Mars, and even has its own helicopter drone!

This lander is also the first to have sound.  Microphones will capture the sounds of entry, descent, and landing (EDL), and the exploration of the surface.

Radios waves take 13.5 minutes to travel from Mars to Earth, so there is no live feed from Mars, but there will be live updates from NASA facilities as the spacecraft approaches and lands. It is estimated to land at 3:55pm EST.
