NASA plans to present scientific findings this afternoon from the rover Curiosity's mission to Mars.
The agency will host a news conference from its Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., at 2 p.m. ET, and CBC.ca will be streaming the live feed from the event here.
Curiosity, also known as the Mars Science Laboratory, is 50 days into a two-year mission to investigate whether conditions on the red planet may have allowed for microbial life.
The rover landed on Mars seven weeks ago inside Gale Crater, with 10 instruments on board to perform experiments.
On Sept. 22 Curiosity touched a Martian rock for the first time with its robotic arm, assessing what chemical elements were within. NASA named the rock "Jake Matijevic" to commemorate an engineer who worked on the Mars project but died days after the rover's landing.
