From NASA:

Tune in for live coverage and landing commentary from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) beginning at 2:15 p.m. EST on the NASA TV Public Channel and the agency’s website, as well as the NASA App, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitch, Daily Motion, and THETA.TV.

Touchdown is scheduled for approximately 3:55 p.m. EST.
Tune in early because this is an "approximate" time.

Missed the live coverage but the reports are "They Sticked it" A perfect landing of a robotic craft thousands (many thousands) of miles away.

Scientists are great.

I am waiting to see it come back and a bunch of little Martians jump out asking if any one could direct them to the local pub !

I guess the Martian Anti-Spacecraft Defense Agency messed up.

I don't believe in aliens from outer space, but the number of probes that disappeared near/ on Mars....

It's taken NASA a long time to look again for life or past life on Mars. The last look was in 1976 with the Viking landers that had some strange contradictory results.

The last rover to reach Mars was NASA's Curiosity, in 2012. It has been exploring an ancient lake bed in Gale Crater, where it has discovered evidence for a once-habitable environment (although it found no actual evidence of past life on Mars).
