Women run the Mars rovers

Cool news story: on Friday Feb 22, the on-duty tactical operations team for the Mars Rovers was an all-women group. It's almost happened accidentally before, as people rotated on and off duty. So with a bit of planning, they decided to swap a few people's schedules to make a 100% women team for a day.

Fantastic. Anything to make conservatives go apoplectic.
