Is this playing on any TV channels or only streaming?
If you have the NASA TV channel, the news conference would be live. Otherwise you'll need to wait for it to show on the news.

Watching!

I heard wind but no one saying, "Take me to your leader." I am disappoint. There are also light rocks, dark rocks, and holey rocks.

I kid but I am actually geeking out over this more than I thought I would.

You, too, can get a Mars camera!

"New Cameras for Landing
For the Mars 2020 Perseverance rover, the engineering team added several cameras and a microphone to document entry, descent and landing in even greater detail. The cameras capture full-color video throughout the vehicle’s final descent to the Martian surface. Some of what the cameras see on the way down will help mission planners decide on the rover's first drives.

These new eyes and ears of Perseverance are assembled from easily available commercial hardware. The cameras and microphone are being flown as a "discretionary payload," which means it's an optional add-on that will be an asset, but is not required for the mission"
