Rover Rolls

NASA’s Martian rover really is on Mars now, having rolled off the lander to have its wheels touch the alien soil for the first time. BBC News story. Nothing up on JPL site yet. Checkout 2020 Hindsight for some excellent blogging of it all.
Edit 12:03: NASA JPL site has the news up, complete with rear Hazcam image of the lander left behind with trackmarks in the Martian soil. Well done Spirit (and well done the NASA team).
