NASA has announced that they will try again to launch the much-delayed MER-B mission, Opportunity, on Sunday. NASA believes that the cork insulation problems that were found after previous delays have been corrected, and none too soon; the launch window for the next four years is rapidly drawing to a close.

In other news, for all of you proud Americans out there, happy Independence Day! Today is Red Colony's birthday as well.
