    Landing times tonight:

    10:31pm PST (Sunday night)
    12:31am CST (Monday morning)
    1:31am EST (Monday morning)
    5:31am GMT (Monday morning)

    It takes 14 minutes for a radio signal traveling at the speed of light, to go from Earth to Mars.

    The landing will be broadcast on NASA TV.
