Mars photos -- wow

So now we're getting images as small as grains of sand! Wowee!

The websites of our Mars rovers:

"Spirit Is Healthy Again.Next up: brush dust off the rock Adirondack and apply Rock Abrasion Tool. When analysis finished, the driving mission begins!"

"Opportunity: "Mission success" panorama complete. Engineers confirm all instruments on the rover's arm are 'working great.'"
