Default Mars Rovers...

http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/all/

This link takes you to all of the 51,000 plus pictures taken by both rovers since touchdown. The little ladies are still purring along well past their exspected life times. This will keep you busy for a good while...

Nice
Somehow Mars looks strangly familiar to Earth, just dry ... very dry.

That's why we have to setup atmospheric condensors to alter that dry environment, jk. It's neat looking at those picts because they were actually taken on Mars. Makes me feel like I've been there and we're that much closer to colonizing it one day.

Default cute...

I did notice one thing in getting to sol 12 on all the pics. A lot are repetes using different filters. The pan cam if you notice is stereoscopic. That is left and right pics appear side by side and when viewed with a stereoscopic viewer appear 3d. You would have to print out the right pair and have them of equal size. Then using a handheld viewer you have a 3d image. There are some later on that use the red/green technic to produce 3d images.

I was also looking at that and was trying to figure out what I had around here that I could utilize into stereo viewing.
My problem is that I am blind in one eye and can't see too well from the other,
