Just what was in that sample of rock the Curiosity rover drilled out of Mars? We don't know yet, but we'll find out later this afternoon, and we'd love for you to join us. Watch with us live at 1:00 pm EST as NASA announces the contents of the rock sample and explains why those results are important. Chances are this won't be the end of the story on whether or not Mars was once capable of supporting life, but it has the potential to be a major piece of that puzzle, and you can watch its reveal live below thanks to the magic of NASA TV.
We've already seen data scientist described as the sexiest job of the next century, so by one metric, The O'Reilly Strata Conference -- which brings together big names in big data to talk about their big ideas -- is the sexiest event going today. We'll be hosting the live stream of the conference's keynote speeches today and tomorrow to help you keep up on the latest developments in data. Whether you want to know how better data analysis could make for more effective, efficient government services or you just want a better understanding of how EA is using data to make better games -- and track your spending on them -- there's something for you. Check out the stream of the event from Santa Clara, California and some of our picks for the speeches we're most interested in below. And don't worry -- unless something very surprising happens, this conference will stay very SFW.
Well, by now you've probably seen and been equal parts terrified and mesmerized by the video of a meteor exploding in the skies over Russia, and if you haven't, take a couple of minutes and go do that right now, because seriously, it's incredible. When you're done, though, make sure you come back here to get an up close and personal look at 2012 DA14, a giant rock from space that so far as we can tell isn't going to explode in our atmosphere and blow out windows today, which is a nice change. Find out more about 2012 DA14 and watch NASA's live stream of the asteroid flyby -- complete with commentary from NASA staff, who are full of all sorts of useful information about asteroids -- right here starting at 2:00 pm EST.
