Landing on Mars

On Sunday the first of two “probes” sent by NASA last summer will land on Mars. NASA in its effort to have a better web site created a very nice Flash tour telling all about the trip and things to see along the way.

I found it especially interesting that 2/3 of all missions to Mars end up failing. Wow. Talk about a good success ratio (that’s not really sarcasm, just a general comment about how we obviously don’t know much about Mars yet. I can tell you this though: I wouldn’t want to be the first person to get a ride to Mars, even if the trip was for free). Check out the great photo I took of the lander.
