The first Mars Exploration Rover, Spirit, will lift off from Cape Canveral today at either 1:58 PM or 2:36 PM EST. You can watch the event via NASA TV by clicking here. Delays forced the postponement of the first launch to today, but the second mission, Opportunity, is still scheduled for launch June 25th.

On a personal note, I apologize for not making any updates for the past few months and for ignoring the emails that you guys have sent. A death in my family has left me on hiatus, but I shall return this summer with site updates, news updates, new articles, and responses to your emails. Thanks for sticking it out :-)
