NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander is preparing to end its long journey and begin a three-month mission to taste and sniff fistsful of Martian soil and buried ice. The lander is scheduled to touch down on the Red Planet Sun May 25.

Phoenix will enter the top of the Martian atmosphere at almost 13,000 mph. In seven minutes, the spacecraft must complete a challenging sequence of events to slow to about 5 mph before its three legs reach the ground. Confirmation of the landing could come as early as 6:53 p.m. CDT.

Come and watch the event LIVE on NASA TV & Sci Ch .
