Two rovers on Mars!

Two rovers on Mars!
Two rovers on Mars! The night Opportunity landed, JPL Chief Engineer Rob Manning, who headed up the MERs’ entries, descents, and landings and Wayne Lee, the MER Chief EDL Engineer for Development, described the process to California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Then- Caltech President David Baltimore and former Vice President Al Gore are off to the side. Right: JPL Director Charles I. Elachi and MER Project Manager Peter Theisinger celebrate with then NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe and Associate Administrator Ed Weiler. "We are two for two!” exclaimed Theisinger. “Go outside and look up at Mars tonight,” said Elachi at a press conference later that night. “We have two rovers up there.” We’ve been there ever since.
