The new NASA rover "Curiosity" is scheduled to make a daring landing on the Red Plant this Sunday, August 5th.   Nearly a Billion people will be watching but none quite as closely as a team from Hollywood and the STARS of the new movie, "Space Warriors."  Multiple nations have made 26 attempts to land on the red planet, with the United States experiencing the only previous success.

An elite crew will be tuning in to a LIVE USTREAM, managed by NASA, inside the home of Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. That's where the cast and crew of "Space Warriors" are filming a new feature film, slated for worldwide release in the Spring of 2013. A first for NASA, planetary scientists and their contractors will provide a historic show for the film's cast and crew, amongst other space aficionados and devotees.

Director Sean McNamara, coming off acclaimed success with the hit film "Soul Surfer," will join the young actors from the feature film, along with more than 200 future planetary explorers visiting Space Camp this week for an opportunity of a lifetime, spending the night at one of the best places to watch a landing, Space Camp. During this "Snoozeum," all will watch the LIVE satellite link with NASA. It will also be broadcast on television stations and networks around the world. After the broadcast, the Space Camp trainees will spend the night under the Saturn V rocket, the vehicle that powered man to the Moon. Read More
