Public Domain Images

While exploring the NOAA's website, I noticed that they have a list of photos of weather and ocean related images that (being funded by your tax dollars) are mostly in the public domain.
I suspect I'll be spidering and looting this collection shortly.

The Spirit of the New Year…


Well, Marvin didn't get this one. Yesterday the Spirit rover successfully bounced to a stop on Mars, linked up with JPL and transmitted pictures back to Earth. You can see the first of the Mars Exploration Rover Mission: Press Release Images. I was hoping for some higher resolution images, which undoubtably will be showing up in the next few days. To all those who were involved in the mission: congratulations! We will be looking forward to the pictures and data you get back.

Addendum: Here's a link to a
high resolution panorama
