Opportunity touched down on Mars last night, and in a landscape unlike anything we've ever seen before! This is too, too cool. Nick and I stayed up to watch the live feed from the control room of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. You couldn't help but feel elated right along with all those people there. I don't think watching the Steelers or the Pens win a championship would have been half as moving. After all, this is a victory for all of mankind, not just one city or school or what have you.
Check out the pictures at these sites (there are some neat Spirit pics too):
