I've always had a soft spot for Ulysses.  Built on a bus similar to Galileo, Ulysses never got much press.  Every few months I will take a look at its web site to see if anything has changed.  Soon I'll have to find somewhere else to look.

Of course, soon we will have a freakin' nuclear powered robot noodling around Mars shooting lasers at things.  That will make up for a lot.

Even if you're not technically oriented, watch this.  It'd be cool in a movie, but doubly spiffy because it's real:

This is what gets me out of bed in the mornings.
