Watch the Mars Rover landing on your Xbox 360

A quick reminder that ‘Curiosity’ is scheduled to touch down on the surface of Mars this weekend.
In case you missed it, keep an eye out for the special Mars Rover section of your Xbox 360 dashboard right on the main page.  From here you can take a quiz about the mission, learn about the incredible engineering that has gone into the mission and much more. Plus, from her you’ll be able to join NASA TV live from Mission control at the JPL during the final moments before landing. Don’t forget that while you are waiting for the big moment you can play the free Kinect Mars Rover simulator available for download and get a few achievements and Gamerscore.
