    my friend told me that they're doing great, and last week they had to pop a wheelie with Spirit because of dust storms blocking sunlight.

    It is awesome, and helps defray the cost of some of the unsuccesful trips. I have a couple of Hubble coffee table books, love those pictures, and hope to have some of these rovers pics.

    Somewhere I saw a pic that had something that looked like an old board laying on the surface. Did anyone else see that? I'm sure it was an illusion but it was freaky!

    Good for Spirit and Opportunity. I hope this will show some people that we can benefit from sending unmanned and maned space craft into space.



    Speaking of which, it happens to be my 16th today birthday too.....
