We've Got Spirit, Yes We Do

I'm a little late with this, but I've been out of town, so too bad. NASA's mission to Mars has reached a milestone. The rover Spirit has landed safely, is up and running, and ready to get to work. Spirit has already started sending some great images back. Check NASA/JPL for the latest images.

This is only the fourth mission to the Mars surface to make it past Martian defense systems. Europe's Beagle lander appears to be lost (apprehended). NASA hopes to raise the tally to five later this month with Spirit's twin rover Opportunity.
