NASA to Discuss Science Findings of Oct. 19 Comet Flyby of Mars

NASA is hosting a media teleconference to provide initial science observations of comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring's close flyby of Mars and the impact on the Martian atmosphere.

NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), and a radar instrument aboard the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft provided the first close-up studies of the comet that originated from the distant, outer reaches of our solar system.

Audio and visuals of the event will be streamed live online at: http://www.nasa.gov/newsaudio and http://www.ustream.tv/nasajpl2
