You guys rock. Keep it up, if Spirit cant wake up, dont let it get you down.. NASA is the window to our future.

BTW- You need a volunteer to go to MARS. I am your man.

You guys rock

1. Can you imagine the highs and lows at NASA?
One minute you're a rock star, next, you lost your gazllion-dollar machine. Yikes.

I hope they can wake Spirit up, too.

2. First the Beagle, then this???? FSCK!
Are the Martians restless or something? They seemed to be so peaceful in '97.

3. Aliens are there now playing with it like a kids RC model.
and are sending back dummy data streams and intercepting our commands to it. If they can travel here they can travel there, yes/no!?

4. Sunday morning
Spirit's sister Opportunity lands. I hope that goes well. A NASA guy on Letterman last night said Spirit still has a heartbeat. I hope she wakes up also.

5. NASA lost my support when they wouldnt check wing damage
on the last shuttle. As long as it is controlled by politicians and not scientist and engineers, it will continue to fail.

6. Pardon my cynicism / lack of trust for the "powers that be" down there
.
.

Did anyone consider that they found something that they don't want the REST of the world to know ??

Naaaah - they wouldn't keep secrets from us

7. Like *what*, exactly? Bin Laden?
No, on something like this, NASA's an open book.

10. Check LBN - New Update

Apparently the Rover is no longer sending gobbledygook but is saying it has a problem. Stay tuned.

13. this rover has performed an illegal operation.
Press control-alt-delete to restart. All unsaved work will be lost.

12. And I love you too.
Oops, sorry, I thought you said "XNASA".

Though, I'd like to add, that I never worked with a finer group of people than I did during my stint with NASA. The hardest part about leaving was knowing that I'd probably never again work alongside such a talented bunch.

I'm pulling for them as well. And if they need a second volunteer to go to Mars, I'm with ya.
