Program Note: Welcome to Mars...

Mars Rover Spirit has been operating on Mars for one year. That's 4 times the expected duration! NOVA has a program airing tonight titled, Welcome to Mars. From the website:
"Welcome to Mars" will follow the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity from the second they crash-land on the planet to many months into their ongoing mission. Davis has been covering the story from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory as it unfolds and will provide a unique, behind-the-scenes take on this voyage of discovery, whose primary goal is to find evidence that liquid water once existed on Mars.
