Nasa's Spirit Rover severed the last umbilical cord connecting it to the landing platform and executed a 45 degree turn last night. This means the little rover is autonomous and all of its actuators are working - it will be able to rove the surface of Mars! If you haven't been following the little guy's progress, go here.

It's a very exciting time to be a space enthusiast!
