It's snowing on Mars
« on: January 27, 2009, 02:40:28 pm »
Yes it looks that way.  I found this story today about arguably the most important robots around at the moment and what they are discovering on Mars.  I've seen a fair bit of news about Mars lately, but this article runs a lot of it together in a very readable and detailed account.

Excerpt :

"The rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, were designed to survive the harsh environment for just 90 days, but somehow they have survived, and they continue to astound Nasa scientists with the new data they send home."
