Some events for the 5th anniversary of Spirit and Opportunity's landing on Mars

Tonight at the Boston Court Performing Arts Center in Pasadena, Jim Bell and Bill Nye will be celebrating the 5th anniversary of the landing of the rovers; Jim will be showing lots of pretty 3D pictures. The event was sold out quickly to our members, but there was one member Twittering from the event.

Another related event that'll be on the Web tomorrow is a lecture by Steve Squyres at Beckman Auditorium at Caltech, for which there'll be a live Webcast. That's at 7 pm Pacific time, which is Friday, January 16, at 03:00 UTC (sorry, Europeans).
