I'm sure the 24hr news channels will cover it. Online: http://www.ustream.tv/nasa

NASA will be broadcasting a number of live streams of the event on its Ustream channel, which should begin around 11:30 p.m. EDT on Sunday, August 5, and should also be broadcasting on a number of media outlets. Curiosity is expected to land at 1:30 a.m. EDT on Monday, August 6. You can follow @MarsCuriosity, the official Twitter account of the Curiosity Rover, and follow NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover on Facebook. If you’re in New York City, you can watch the live NASA broadcast on the billboards in Times Square.

It's the one on the right, next to previous mars rovers. I had no idea it was that big, crazy.

NASA spends millions of dollars to make sure there are no Transformers on Mars? Lame, unless there are Transformers there. Then it's cool.
