In a lovely talk, in his uncommonly engaging way, Steve Squyres presents the portrait of him that now hangs in the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. Of course his portrait is a panoramic photo! After his five-minute introduction, it goes on to a less-well-miked interchange between him and Jim Green that's a little more of a strain to listen to, but it includes him discussing the "dirty little secret" of how he can see the panoramas before anybody's at work at JPL because amateurs in Europe get to the rover photos before he does!
