Carl Sagan would be proud. NASA released statistics today that shows earthlings have a great fascination of Mars. In the last six weeks, the amount of visits to the NASA website for the Mars Rover project has numbered more than the amount of people living on earth.
Since January 4th, the site has been accessed more than 6.5 billion times. It's now more popular than the NOAA site for tracking hurricanes and the IRS site for tracking taxpayers. Not surprisingly really, at least with the NASA site you can see where your tax dollars are going, as opposed to watching your tax dollars go on the IRS site.
