This is being broadcast on the Science Channel now. It will be repeated at 11 EDT.

So far it looks like a good summing up and look at future plans for the rovers. Dr. Matt G is one of the folks being interviewed. :)

Caught it this afternoon. I enjoyed the recap of the mission so far, particulary listening to the people who are involved talk about their own excitement.
The guy from the Vatican observatory who suggested that any faith that was shaken by the finding of life on Mars must be a pretty weak faith was quite refreshing.
Very enjoyable program.

It was a good show. Especially interesting to see Dr. Hartmann, a respected scientist in anyone's book. His own book is good too. The "Vatican guy" (whose first name, in fact, is Guy) happens to be the author of Turn Left at Orion, one of the best beginner's observational astronomy books.

Thanks for the notice - I caught it at 11 and was glad I did.
