Mission to Mars II: Electric Boogaloo

Tonight all the cool kids will be watching t.v. " Landing of the second Mars Lander, Opportunity, is scheduled for 12:06 a.m. EST Sunday, and Theisinger said mission control would not slow down Opportunity's mission because of the problems with Spirit.

"Opportunity is headed toward Meridiani Planum, a smooth plain near Mars' equator, which is believed to be full of iron-bearing hematite, a mineral that on Earth usually forms in the presence of liquid water. "

I once had a bug bite on my Merdiani Planum. Hurt like a mother. Couldn't reach it and I think it got infected.
