I hate to sound like the ungrateful beggar in the Life of Brian, but I like this one so much that I took the liberty of creating a 1680 x 1050 for the monitor I now use at home so I wouldn't have to ruin the image with a stretch. (But Astro0 will tell you I've done worse things to his artwork before.)

So if anyone else wants it, (along with a right-aligned version for people like me with cluttered desktops) heretis:

Does anyone have a link to YouTube/elsewhere footage of Spirit's landing? You know, the NASA TV coverage at the time? Can't find any.

On YouTube, "Mars: Two for Two" and the Nova episode "Mars: Dead or Alive" have good edits of NASA footage. (I'm assuming you mean in the control center.) The Nova episode is a riveting account of the mission and what the team surmounted to fly.

There's always this very cheerful beginning of the mission: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E2zwDYf_c4...feature=related
