NASA Mars Rover reaches "Victoria Crater"

For those of you keenly observing the Mars rover mission, take note. The Mars rover Opportunity reached the rim of "Victoria Crater," on the Meridiani Planum region of the red planet, on the rover's 951st Martian day (Sept. 26, 2006).

During the drive, the rover captured these shots, that clearly show the crater, and from what I have read, is actually bigger than scientists predicted. I still find it incredible that this rover is still running after this many days, and that fact that shots like these can be clearly taken from so far away!
