As we marvel at the amazing imagery coming back from NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory rover ‘Curiosity’ – we wanted to highlight the now-silent rover Spirit’s launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 17 (SLC-17) in Florida on June 10, 2003. Spirit’s sister, Opportunity continues to explore her patch of the Red Planet.
