Mars Rover Screen Saver that auto updates!

If you are interested in the Mars missions you may want to check this out.

http://robotics.nasa.gov/mer/screensaver.htm

Every time your screen saver is activated, the latest daily status reports and image updates will be brought automatically to your computer. Every day you'll read status reports prepared by the mission control team and see a new picture relating to a story of interest for each rover.

It makes me feel connected to that other planet running parallel to ours in this big ol' solar system.

thanks!

Cool stuff! Thanks a lot.

Small, creative things like this plant seed in young people's minds. My children will see this, be curious, and maybe research a bit without my prodding (but I will prod if I must!).
