Mars Rover: Success

Great news on the Mars exploration front. Spirit, the first of two Mars rovers, successfully landed just a short while ago and sent a signal back to Earth.

Weblogger Susan Kitchens had some pretty good live coverage as well at the Planetary Society’s Wild About Mars progam as well.

I can’t wait to hear more about what Spirit’s explorations in the coming weeks. What a great day for NASA. It’s nice to see the space program achieve some success for a change.
