The Astronomy Picture of the Day for today is a 360 degree panorama of the Spirit landing site.

During all the other problems you have today, remember this: we threw a robot car onto the next planet over, and we’re driving the damn thing around by remote control, based on the pictures it’s sending back to us. So when somebody hassles you, tells you that something is too difficult or impossible, look ‘em straight in the eye and say, “Dammit, if we can toss a robot car onto another friggin’ planet and drive it around, there’s nothing that’s impossible, if we just decide we want to do it.”
