Take a rover for a spin in cyberspace

As part of NASA's M2K4 Web site, an interactive program has been launched that gives any citizen of cyberspace the chance to drive the Mars rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, across the Red Planet.

"This experience gives visitors to NASA's Web site the chance to explore Gusev Crater and Meridiani Planum without having to make the 300-million-mile trek," said Kennedy Space Center Public Web Information Manager Dennis Armstrong. "We're hoping users will count on this feature as a great source to find out about Mars Exploration Rover discoveries. A lot of people already have. During the first 10 days of program operation, we received more than 210,000 page views."
