PASADENA, Calif. -- Are you ready for some science? No matter where you are, you can join us online for a live public talk from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., on Thursday, Aug. 15 at 7 p.m. PDT (10 p.m. EDT) about the Curiosity rover's first year on Mars. This talk will revisit the dramatic, nail-biting landing and some of the mission's top science results.

The speaker is JPL's Ashwin Vasavada, deputy project scientist for the Mars Science Laboratory/Curiosity mission.

Live streaming high-definition video of the event will be carried on Ustream, with chat available, at: http://www.ustream.tv/nasajpl.

Since successfully landing on Mars on Aug. 5, 2012, PDT (Aug. 6, 2012, EDT), Curiosity has been refining much of what we know about the Red Planet. The car-sized rover has already achieved its main science goal of revealing that ancient Mars could have supported life. Curiosity is currently en route to investigate the base of 3-mile-high (about 5 kilometers) Mount Sharp, whose exposed layers might hold intriguing information about Mars' history.
