2 down and 1 to go

It seems that there is still no sign of Beagle 2, although Mars Express will be able to look for it on Wednesday. NASA's Spirit has been able to send back its first black and white images indirectly via an orbiter and so they have been able to release a nice press release image of Gusev crater. It looks as though they lined it up a bit better than today's astronomy picture of the day. The image is very reminiscent of the Pathfinder images back in 1997. There are now less than three weeks to go until Opportunity lands, although on current odds it shouldn't work.
