Dear discuss-lfm members,

A collective sigh of relief and another successful milestone
in the Mars Missions ... MGS is now in orbit!  The MGS web site
is yet to be updated at 6am Central but should be soon.  If you accessed 
the RealAudio/Real Video coverage via LFM's web site, NASA-TV,
or national news, please share your additional insights!  

Donna Shirley, Manager Mars Exploration Program, was a featured 
guest on CNN last night -- she wearing her good luck red suit (worn on 
July 4th/Pathfinder Landing Day) and red MGS cap, smiling continuously 
throughout the interview!
