Crash!

NASA’s Mars Polar Lander appears to be uncontactable now. Another fault regarding Mars-bound craft? (the last was the Climate Orbiter which was “lost”). I wonder if SGI is regretting their attempts to up-play the importance of their role in the Polar Lander mission. Even though SGI computers probably weren’t controlling the navigation stuff, it still seems to give them bad publicity :).
