    View from Mars...

    Wow...

    "After 14 months of climbing, the Mars rover Spirit has reached the summit of Husband Hill, 269 feet above the edge of the Martian plain. The panoramic view from the top is spectacular. According to lead scientist Steve Squyres, 'What field geologists typically do - and Spirit is a robotic field geologist - is you climb to the top of the nearest hill and take a look around so you get the lay of the land and figure out where you want to go.'"
    so very cool.

    Dude, that's like... Utah, or Arizona or something. You can tell its fake by the UPC tag on that rock on the lower left there...

    Yeah man, that stuff is awesome. No matter how impractical some may consider interplanetary exploration, there's one giant cool factor attached to this stuff.

    That's amazing... How long were those little robots supposed to last? 3 months or something? And they have remained operational for a year and a half or so? That's pretty remarkable.

    No way. I mastered the program and now I can make digital photos more complex than that. Now I just have to master photoshop and flash.

    "Mars rover Spirit has filmed a lot of videos of mars. Unfortunately they haven't been sent to the NASA, for fear of a RIAA lawsuit for illegal sharing of files..."
