Mars spacecraft orbit insertion

NASA Television will broadcast live the Sunday, Sept. 21, Mars orbital insertion of the agency’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft, from 9:30 to 10:45 p.m. EDT.

The broadcast also will be available on the agency’s website.

The program, originating from the Lockheed Martin Facility in Littleton, Colorado, will feature live camera views of mission control, interviews with senior NASA officials and mission team members, and mission video footage. The spacecraft’s mission timeline will place the spacecraft in orbit at approximately 9:50 p.m. EDT.

Coverage will wrap up with a post-orbit insertion news conference, targeted for about two hours after orbital insertion begins. Media can ask questions on Twitter using the hashtag #askNASA.

NASA TV coverage will air on NTV-1 (Public) and NTV-2 (Education). A clean feed for media will be carried on NTV-3 (Media Channel). The media feed will include views of the MAVEN Mission Support Area without graphics or interviews.
