Mars mission has ups and downs during second day on red planet

PASADENA, Calif. - NASA scientists brainstormed Saturday to fix potentially crippling problems that left Mars Pathfinder's robot rover stuck aboard the lander with tantalizing rocks just out of reach. In a ballet of engineering, optimism and movements of two planets 120 million miles apart, controllers worked to fix a radio link to the Sojourner rover and make sure a ramp deployed so it could safely leave Pathfinder.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A plume of flames lit the darkness Nov. 16 at Russia's Tyuratam space launch facility as a rocket lifted from the ground with a 6-ton spacecraft embarking on a yearlong journey to Mars. It was to be another step in Earthlings' exploration of the solar system. Instead, it became an exploration of the United States' ability to track and identify objects traveling in space and a lesson in how that information is disseminated.
