Got a few minutes? Then check out Emily Lakdawalla's always-fun Planetary blog, where she has some big images of the paths the rovers have taken over the past two years. Bear in mind, they were only supposed to last for three months! People complain about NASA cost overruns, but forget that sometimes good engineering can save you money too.

After you've seen that, check out these images from SMART-1 which is orbiting the Moon. It has a 3D anaglyph! It's the one displayed above, but bigger. I love those. I have several pairs of red/green glasses just in case one pops up.'
