Mars or Bust

Here's a nifty press release that just came to my work e-mail about the job NRAO is doing in tracking the Phoenix spacecraft, which is set to land on Mars on Sunday. I'm not on duty on Sunday, myself, but in fact right this very moment I'm... Well, actually, I'm not working on processing the data from the last test, because you know how this sort of thing goes: if people give you something important to do and tell you it's super high-priority, it will inevitably turn out that something needs to be fixed when there's nobody around who's capable of fixing it. But never fear. I'm sure it'll be working fine tomorrow morning. Meanwhile, I can vicariously pretend I'm on my way to Mars!
