Hi folks,

I've put together a sort of retrospective of Mars rover photos, essentially my Top 20 photos returned by the Spirit and Opportunity rovers. A lot of the images may be familiar but there are quite a few unique images created outside of NASA/JPL/Cornell that are very awe-inspiring.

So have a look, the link is on my homepage, and enjoy!

Had trouble adding the above image to my post, so all is fine now. Just go to my homepage and click on the Top 20 Photos links.

Thanks, Swift! I'll be adding an image or two for each future location visited......although it looks like Opportunity will be experiencing a delay enroute to Victoria......

I still feel a sense of awe that the rovers are still operating!

Me too, but it's a definate testimony to the concept that overengineering often pays huge dividends when least expected.
