Space.com has an article reminding us that the Mars rover teams are getting ready for the soon arrival of the rovers to the cold Red planet. Basically the ESA rover will get there first around Christmas, and then the Nasa's rover Spirit should arrive around January 3rd, and then Nasa's rover Opportunity will arrive around January 24th. Nasa scientists hope there won't be any gusts of wind or a big hard rock to bust a robot gut on. Everyone says they're ready for the landings so let's hope everything's A-OK. Japan's Mars probe may not make it. It's unlikely, but if it does survive, the Nozomi (translated hope) rover will arrive around December 14th.
