Mars Curiosity Rover Landing Broadcast at Times Square, Earth

    Newer Older

    Tonight thousands gathered in Times Square to watch the Mars Curiosity rover safely land on Mars after a 352-million mile, 8.5 month journey.

    Seeing so many people gathered on a late and rainy Sunday night was truly awesome to experience. People were captivated by the images being displayed on the Toshiba screen at Times Square and listened closely to the audio broadcast over their phones. When the rover landed, Times Square erupted in a loud cheer followed by chants of "Science! Science! Science!" and "NASA! NASA! NASA!"

    It was really incredible to see so many people collectively captivated by science and exploration. | facebook | twitter | behance | 500px
