Take that Old Europe!

NASA reports that we are 'Two for Two' as Opportunity lands on Mars: "NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe led off a post-landing press conference with praise for the Mars Exploration Rover team, which he called 'the best in the world.'"

That's another big "in your face" to the Europeans. Meanwhile in other news, Dr. Ed Weiler, NASA's Associate Administrator for Space Science, seems to have gotten a little too attached to his twin rovers. He noted that the last few days have been an emotional rollercoaster for the Mars team. But, he said, "we resurrected one rover and saw the birth of another." Someone should remind Doctor Weiler that these things are remote controlled cars.
