|Subject: Home Movies from Mars|
For those of you who would like to watch some home movies from travelers in a truly distant place, check out the videos on the Mars Exploration Rover Mission web page at http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/home/index.html
The Spirit and Opportunity videos called "90 Sols in 90 Seconds" are fascinating.
A couple of caveats though: Since the video download files are quite large (3.5 meg for the smallest version # Quicktime Small), I suggest you only try these if you have a high-speed internet connection. Also, the Spirit video has many superimposed images from the close-up camera on the rover, which makes it hard to watch without stopping frequently.
