The place to go for Mars coverage is the Exploratorium's website.  My 
friend Paul Doherty is the chief scientist there, and his live webcasts 
(http://www.exploratorium.edu/mars/webcasts.html) on the Mars results 
are down to twice weekly.  (He was doing them daily at the beginning.) 
  The Exploratorium has a good collection of photos 
(http://qt.exploratorium.edu/photopost/index.php) downloaded from NASA. 
  They have access to some photos that NASA isn't handing out directly 
to the public.  The Exploratorium is posting everything they get right 

NASA is apparently doling the information out slowly so their 
scientists have a chance to look at the most important data first.  If 
there are papers to be written based on the raw photos, the NASA 
scientists don't want to give them away without at least having someone 
peruse them first.

C. J. Cherryh, "Invader", on why we visit very old buildings:
       "A sense of age, of profound truths.  Respect for something
       hands made, that's stood through storms and wars and time.
       It persuades us that things we do may last and matter."
