I didn’t post anything on Friday (last week, or the week before) for lack of anything much to say, but then I remembered some new Mars content. JPL’s Spacecraft 3D app has evidently been around for a while but I just learned about it with the announcement of a new version recently. I wrote it up on my rocketry blog; read about it there, but here’s pictures of more of the Mars spacecraft included.

I’m still in boringville, but I’m past the 2/3 point of the journey.
