Hi Grant

Yesterday i attended a "Exploring the Solar System" meeting organized by the BAA and held at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge.One of the guest speakers was Prof Steven Squyres who is the principle investigator of the Mars Exploration Rover team at Cornell University in the US.He more or less came straight to Cambridge from Gatwick airport and delivered probably one of the best talks i've ever heard and he was suffering from jet lag as well.It was quite a insight into what goes on with these missions and i think everyone who was there had great respect for him and his team.

All the best
