NASA is currently holding a press conference after the successful landing of “Opportunity” and potential workaround of the flash memory problem on “Spirit.” I’m reslishing seeing all the engineers cheering and high fives. Much like Pathfinder, this is an amazing opportunity to witness the highs and lows of exploration in near real time.

If you haven’t already seen it, I’d encourage viewing Nova’s: MARS Dead or Alive, especially the third chapter showing some of the technical issues they resolved during testing.

September 4, 2004 — I have been very distracted by the rovers, but they’re apparently still going.

    I found your website because I was googling about pancakes. I was in the fashion industry (Paris, Milan and NYC) then quit to raise my son. Now I am researching the pancake market after so many rave reviews of my pancakes. I thought that was interesting doing your MBA research on the pancake industry. It was appreciated. Thanks. Sarah
