Big news on the space front. Today, the Stardust probe flew through two jets of a comet. It took the best pictures ever of a comet, and collected dust that will hopefully be returned to earth in 2006.

Tomorrow (really today, as I'm posting this after midnight), the Mars exploration rover "Spirit" will be touching down. The first link above goes to some video trailers NASA put together to promote the landing, while the second goes to a page that will be updated throughout the day, including during the landing sequence (11:30 or so PM, EST.)

Good luck to Spirit!
