Spirit and Opportunity: The Newest Martian Rovers (Pics)

Beagle might not be found, but Spirit is sending back pics already!

Check this one out! It was taken by Spirit on Jan. 4, 2004.

Look for more at this link: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/mer2004/rove...es/images.html

Tons more info here: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/mer2004/index.html

I, for one, find all this exciting. I remember when Viking I and II landed and the pics started coming in... this brings memories!

You know, with the recent series of failures to land spacecraft on Mars, I'm thinking NASA is gonna have to push back the supposedly "planned" 2020 human mission to Mars. Too bad.

Thanks alot for the pictures, SW.

Yes, by the year 2000, all of manking will be living in space, exploring the far reaches of the universe! (Man, did they guess wrong =P)

I think all of this stuff is really neat, and I was just watching the news about it. Thanks for the links
