NASA will live-stream the Mars Rover Curiosity landing on the Xbox Dashboard next week.

Major Nelson reports: "Keep an eye out for the special Mars Rover section of your Xbox 360 dashboard right on the main page. From here you can take a quiz about the mission, learn about the incredible engineering that has gone into the mission and much more. Plus, from her you'll be able to join NASA TV live from Mission control at the JPL during the final moments before landing."

Live footage will begin at 6:31am BST on Monday. In order to watch the footage you'll need to download Microsoft's live-streaming app from the marketplace.
