That’s right, it might be difficult to find an NFL game across town live online, but if you want to watch the “Curiosity” rover touch down on Mars, no problem. NASA.gov is making the landing available for viewing all around the world… LIVE… ONLINE… and yes, it’s FREE. For those cord cutters interested in television that is literally out of this world, NASA TV is available for you to watch online all the time. Tonight the latest rover will land on Mars and send back images once it is on the ground. No video from Mars yet, but this is still one small step for man, one giant leap towards canceling cable. OK, maybe it’s a bigger step in the advancement of science, but the point is, there is a lot of great live content online for free to those who want to cancel cable.
