On September 5, 2012, spectators across the globe are given a rare opportunity to view the live premiere of the latest episode of "NASA 360". This special online relay of this Emmy-award winning series will have guests and producers of the new episode plan who will be available online for interaction.

The live broadcast of "NASA 360: Robots, Rocks and Rovers" will start at 5 p.m. EDT (10 p.m. GMT). NASA Television will telecast the premiere on the NASA TV public channel and via cable carriers, AMC-18C to viewers throughout Alaska, continental North America, and Hawaii.

A prize competition program enables technical innovations to be emphasized at NASA's Centennial Challenges. The challenges have been planned to stimulate nation's expertise in bringing revolutionary advances in technology potential to NASA and society. This challenge requires the teams to design and construct autonomous robots that can detect, collect and hand over the samples. Winners will receive a $1.5 M prize purse.

Dr. Mason Peck, NASA Chief Technologist, Dr. Bill Moore, Hampton University/NIA planetary geologist, Chris Ferguson, astronaut and commander of the final space shuttle mission, robotics experts from WPI, and the competing team at Sample Return Robot Challenge will also attend the program. The program will also have new NASA 360 hosts including Caleb Kinchlow and Molly McKinney.
