ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I was 11 in 1997 when the Pathfinder mission with the Sojourner rover landed – on July 4th. I was glued to the TV the whole day! Perfect timing on that one.
I looked on Wikipedia to get the year right and they have this neat photo comparison of the wheel size of the three Mars rovers.
What has a marshmallow-shaped lump of plutonium, rock-vaporizing lasers for eyes, and is headed for Mars?
Umm…the exhumed body of Yasser Arafat?
