Mars rover is off and running!

NASA's Mars rover Spirit has left its landing pad and is now on the surface of Mars! Spaceflight Now has a good article describing the procedure; they also have a great mission status center which has regular updates and pictures from the mission (NASA's site has even more pictures). If you're wondering what the rover's going to do in the next few weeks there's also a good article on the exploration plan.
