it is a mission years in the making and if it succeeds, we'll know more about space than ever before. nasa's marches rover is set to touch down on mars very early monday morning. getting it there is an operation that relies on precision, perfection and impeccable timing. joining us now to talk about that is the guy from nasa headquarters. he is the man in charge, at
6:42 am
least this morning, he is in charge. here in washington, d.c., administrator charles bolden. thank you for waking up and talking with us. let's talk about this process. this is a pretty complicated process. >> it is an incredible process. it has been under way since he launched last thanksgiving. the mars rover carrying curiosity will now descend to the martian surface. it is about a seven-machine flight of officerror through the martian atmosphere and it will be lowrd you to the surface through a sky crane system and will stay there for a couple of years exploring the planet. big objective is to help determine whether life is existent on the planet, whether it could have existed before and what is the potential for life being sustained there in the future. since we are trying to put
6:43 am
humans on mars in 2030 in response to president obama's direction to nasa to do so. >> now, this sound like a complicated process and has has to maneuver over a big crater and it goes 13,000 miles per hour and this is a seven-minute window. this sounds really complicated. how on earth do you plan something like this? >> with great care and precision and very precise attention to detail. we have a lot of experience on mars, some bad and then a lot good. the united states is very proud that we are the only people that have actually successfully put rovers on the surface of mars so this is one that we hope will also be successful. we plan for all contingencies but the team is excite and very confident that everything is going to work. >> as you just mentioned, have
6:44 am
been some issues in the past. what kind of changes were made to make it different this time? >> if you want to look at this compared to previous rovers, the biggest difference is the precision with which we're going to land. people remember the image because we won't physically see curiosity as it touches down because we don't have cameras mounted on the surface of mars. what will happen is that this will 199through the martian atmosphere, actually hover several hundred feet above the ground and then the rover will be lowered with a sky crane so we can land in a very precise area with spirit, opportunity prior to now landed in sort of a big beach ball and it bounced around the martian surface. this is very precise. >> well, charles, thank you very much. charles bolden who is administrator at that is a we apologize for the huge delay. we'll say thank you because
6:45 am
wear almost out of time here. we appreciate it. >> all right. thank you very much. have a great morning. >> and as they say, there's tucker barnes. >> there was a massive delay there for you and you still couldn't get here. >> i did the best i could under the circumstances. a left pressure. >> i have a never seen you move that fast before. >> tony was showing me something on the computer. blame tony for that. >> we'll find out about that later. >> let's get to the weather though. >> nice of to you join us. >> i was right there, like two feet away. you guys are being dramatic. the numbers from last month, seven days with 100 plus for the month of july. we did 22 days 90 or better. not your imagination if you thought it was hot. average temperature when you average the highs and lows, 84 degrees and believe it or not, that is the second warmest july
6:46 am
on record. the record, last year. last july, we were 84.5 degrees. we've had very hot julys. maybe next year, i'll take a vacation for the month of july. right now at reagan national, we are fairly comfortable. 73 out at the airport. 73 in leonardtown. 60s breaking out again off to the north and west. 66 in martinsburg. 64 in winchester. highs later today, upper 80s to about 90 just like yesterday. lots of humidity out there and a decent chance we'll see scattered showers and thunderstorm reappear here later today. early this morning, we have showers and thunderstorms across the bay. earlier, these were in southern maryland where we had pretty good thunderstorms. chincoteague, assateague getting some rain showers. stevensville as you get out towards easton, rain showers as well. i think this will push to the east. might get a few light showers or a little bit of bright --
6:47 am
light drizzle to start the day. we have a cold front that is trying to come through. the cold front is so weak that it is never really going to make. it the air behind it is drier. although tomorrow will be hot, i don't think it will be terribly humid. showers and storms return this afternoon. definitely bring an umbrella here because some of the storms, even though they'll be scattered could contain some heavy downpours, brief heavy downpours. tomorrow, just kind of hot, but not terribly humid. friday, hot and humid, mid-90s. >> back into the 90s. here we go. >> thank you. hello. >> tony perkins is here. >> that means -- >> it is time for ask the weather guys, the most popular segment some morning television. this is the segment where tucker barnes and i put our big heads together to answer your most pressing questions, weather-related or otherwise.

shortened when the weather is warm. so the populations are getting large. -- insects are cold blooded animals. >> it may be that you are noticing them more. certainly the food sources are this. it is interesting that drag on flies are indicators of good water quality. they won't breed in water that is of poor quality. >> why are they attracted to the cars? >> i'm not completely sure but i have a couple of theories here. drag on flies, especially males, are territorial. and they will chase other males out of their territory. now, i don't think that they're mistaking your car or the drivers for other drag on flies but they might be perceive it as a threat and they act in this defensive way. >> that's interesting. >> must be a male dragon fly
6:51 am
that is heading into your car. >> and i seem to see them hovering around the windshield like the writer of the question. would they be hovering around windshielded for any particular reason? >> it could be that, oftentimes, especially females will be attracted to shiny surfaces. it turns out female drug on supplies lay their eggs in water. the baby dragon plays will actually develop underwater feeding on insects and other things in the water. they breathe through gills. they develop underwater and then they fly out as adults when they are. >> this is fascinating. is there a certain type of drag on fly that is nate -- dragon
6:52 am
