Just a quick word to let you all know the excitement of the Mars
Pathfinder hasn't been restricted to the US.  Here in Australia we seem
to be getting a lot of coverage as well.

I had 60 sleepy eyed 5 to 10 year olds, stay up to watch the
announcement that the Pathfinder landed.  We watched it by NASA-TV over
the internet using CU-SeeMe, and dreaded the thought of loosing the
connection.  So at 1:07am Saturday morning (that's our time), our kids
let out an excited but very sleepy cheer!!

I hope you all had as much fun as we did!
