There's several robotic space craft in the news. The first is that the Beagle has problems. Apparently it's not booting up right. They're working on it and hoping to breath some dog breath back into it. The Second is that the SOHO craft is failing. This may put Sun and Space weather forcasts back into the "ahem" dark ages. The Third is that the Japan's Mars probe made its swing by Earth OK. So I guess it's good for another week. Also, there's some nice pics of where the Mars Rover crafts are now in relation to Earth on the Space.com website.
