NASA’s InSight Mars Lander Live Viewing

Nov 26, 2018 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

NASA is going back to Mars! InSight, or “Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport” will soon study the interior of Mars and help research how rocky planets, such as Mars, the Earth and the Moon, may have been formed 4.5 billion years ago. InSight is scheduled to land on the Martian surface on Monday, November 26, 2018 at 3:00 PM EST, and you can watch the live coverage at the visitor complex! Once on Mars, it will probe as deep as 16 feet into the Martian surface, gathering data about Mars' crust, mantle and core.

NASA TV will live-stream the landing, and the visitor complex will stream the coverage on two large video screens. Watch in the Rocket Garden and in the North Atlantis Lawn, located behind Space Shuttle Atlantis. Additionally, view the landing coverage in Journey to Mars: Explorers Wanted between 2:00-3:30 PM.

Schedule:

  • 9:00 - 10:00 AM - Live interviews with mission experts on NASA TV (Rocket Garden and North Atlantis Lawn)
  • 10:00 - 2:00 PM - Related NASA video on display on loop (Rocket Garden and North Atlantis Lawn)
  • 2:00 - 3:30 PM - Live landing commentary on the NASA TV Public Channel (Rocket Garden, North Atlantis Lawn and Journey to Mars)
