Mars Rovers back online!


Dust settles. Back in rovin action!

"NASA's Opportunity Mars rover took a first tentative step into the planet's Victoria Crater Tuesday, at the beginning of a risky trek that could spell trouble for the little explorer. The mission has been on hold during dust storms the last two months, and the rover is now headed into the half-mile-wide crater. Researchers hope to examine formations in the crater that may give them new information about the Mars atmosphere from millions of years ago."
