Dust Devils Race Across Mars

I personally think this is rather cool. Mars Rover, Spirit, has video taped a series of dust devils careening across the surface.

If you go to the CNN article above, you can view the film as a .gif file that runs for about 10 seconds and may take a minute or two to download.

One of the things that has surprised me from time to time is just how much info we're getting from the Mars Rovers - do you realize that these guys were launched over two years ago and only landed just this last January? That's pretty impressive. And like the energizer bunny, they just keep on ticking!

It's kinda cool to see that there's still a few things where "Made in America" means something.
