  Mars Science Laboratory is due to land at Gale Crater on Mars at 10:31 pm PDT this Sunday. EDL (entry, descent and landing) takes about seven minutes. Curiosity's mission is not to search for life on Mars but rather the materials necessary for life and the geological evidence of their presence. One can preview and follow the events in real time using the Java application at Eyes on the Solar System.
