Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter About to Arrive

Image Credit NASA
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter will begin braking and hopefully go into orbit sometime on March 11 Australian time (March 10 US time), rather than burning up or smacking into Mars. NASA TV will start broadcasting the insertion maneuver around 7.00 am AEST (6.30 am ACDST) Saturday March 11. So if you have been up early watching Venus next to beta Capricornii, they hang around for the broadcast.
