Wow.

OTOH, I'm visiting Tucson, and--except for the saguaros--it doesn't look all that different. ;)

We watched the lander touch down live- Canadian TV did a live feed with NASA. You would have thought I built the darn thing I was so excited when it landed safe.

Looks like it could use a bar, or at least a convenience store.

Yeah, it does strongly resemble Phurnace, AZ.

It's really exciting that a new probe has landed on Mars - this time at the ice cap, sent there to find water, and maybe life.

This link will take you to a panorama shot of the Mars landscape taken by the Mars rover, Spirit.

It's f-ing awsome to look at these pictures!

P.S. Your curser will become a little "zoom-in" doohicky when it's over the picture. Click on it to be really blown away by the landscape of another planet.

As a university undergrad, I did some analysis of soil data transmitted back by the Viking probes. Even dealing with third-hand data, I was excited. Just knowing that Mars is out there, solid, reachable, and completely alien, solidified my love of the planet.

The latest pictures... well, there are no words for the effect of that kind of magic.

Um, what's that little white speck off in the distance?

Alf? Is that you...?
