Well, not live really, but with a 9-minute delay. The NASA Mars Exploration Rover Spirit rover landed on Mars yesterday afternoon and started to broadcast images from the surface of the Red Planet. Not since the 1997 Mars Pathfinder mission have space enthusiasts been so excited. The black and white pictures that the rover has sent are stunning, but the ones that the rover will begin to take tomorrow will have fourteen times the resolution and will be in vivid color. The rover is expected to survey the Martian landscape for 90 days so the next three months should be very interesting. Big ups to NASA and JPL for getting it there!
