That's great but still 2D. I've got the red and blue glasses if
somebody has the URL for the JPEGS.

I too have been slightly frustrated by the difficulties thus far of
finding the GOOD pics -- THE KIND MEN LIKE -- of our former home

Princess Wei and I did enjoy watching live video by web from the NASA
HQ when the Opportunity landed successfully. Small wonder they were so
excited. Not many people know this, but a human baby (just some orphan)
was sent to Mars in that Rover, and the NASA guys were worried that it
was going to die too soon like the one in the Spirit did. For obvious
reasons, NASA doesn't talk much about the babies on those landers.
Supposedly there's one in the orbiting doohickey too, which is still
alive. It's part of some study on brain growth in zero gravity. As it
was explained to me, some huge gov't project's continuation hinges on
what they learn about babies gestated in zero gravity. "Project Ark?"
Something like that. I hear they're in a big hurry for some reason.

With OUR luck, one of the irradiated little bastards will grow a
giant, hideous brain like The Leader from the old Hulk comics and come
back to brutally rule us with a glowing metal fist. THAT'll teach us!
There are just some places Man's dick wasn't meant to go, like Mars or
a Salad Shooter.

I want to get me one of those watches they gave the JPL people, that
runs on Mars time. I already got a little Java widget that gives me a
Mars clock on my desktop.

Hurry hell, they're LATE. Something kept eating most of the earlier
ones. The only reason they got through this time was the Brits sent it
a puppy to chew on just before ours got there.

I'm hoping the two rovers last a while. I want to see them drive half
way across Mars and face off against each other. Battlebots!

I dunno. Looks like a GREAT place to film SUV ads, though!

PS, those tracks all over the place, I'd say, are DEFINITE WORMSIGN!
