    NASA.tv will have live coverage at 6pm EDT today, Sunday, May 25, 2008.
    Anyone going to tune in?

    There's a 55% chance of failure. Those are rough odds.

    Hopefully this will be more entertaining than the BIG NEWS about the supernova remnant they had a while back.

    Do you think the lander will softly touchdown or go Splat! like a couple of previous attempts? :rolleyes:

    lol, it fits the odds. A power landing will be tough, but hopefully they'll make it.

    But I'm definitely tuning in. Exciting stuff.

    I hope they make it this time. Mars has proven to be a though one.

    If this proves even half as exciting as the last time I tuned in to NASA TV, there is a 55% chance I won't gouge out my own eyes.

    I'm forecasting a 55% chance of lulz.
