"First Look at Spirit on Mars

This mosaic image taken by the navigation camera on the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit shows a 360 degree panoramic view of the rover on the surface of Mars."

Woo hoo! This is awesome news! I recall hearing talk that the rover had been lost! It's great to hear that it wasn't.

More info at the Nasa site.

The "Beagle 2" from Britian was lost. It landed christmas day, and no signal has been recieved. Very sad.
The "Spirit landed today, and another NASA rover will land on the other side of Mars later this month. Very exciting stuff. [img]graemlins/awesomework.gif[/img]
