Within the past hour or so the second Mars Rover was launched. I was begining to be afraid that technical problems were going to keep it on the ground.

Yay! I'm watching it, too. Have a good trip!

Every time one of those goes up I wish I was on it...But who needs humanities teachers in space, or on Earth for that matter? Alas...

I watched it launch as well! thanx for the link sarongsong! It never fails to amaze me; the amont of power in each launch! i cant wait until they get to mars and we really start to learn alot about it. anyone think a manned mission is next? i mean not real soon but eventually like when a 14 year old grows up and becomes an astronaut?
