NASA’s full technological prowess will be on display Sunday night when its latest Mars lander attempts to safely reach the surface. While there will be plenty of opportunities both online and from cable networks to catch the gripping attempt, perhaps the coolest will be in New York’s Times Square.

“In the city that never sleeps, the historic Times Square will be the place for New Yorkers to participate in this historic landing,” said John Grunsfeld, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. “When you think of all the big news events in history, you think of Times Square, and I can think of no better venue to celebrate this news-making event on Mars.”

Positioned directly below the world-famous New Year’s Eve ball, Toshiba’s Visual dual LED screens will allow spectators to see all of the action happening in Mission Control. The broadcast will start at 11:30 p.m. EDT August 5 and continue through 4 a.m. EDT the next day.

To see just how insanely crazy complicated this latest Mars landing is, check out this NASA animation below. Truly, this will be a thrilling moment in space exploration to be a part of.
