The landing sequence went perfectly and Pathfinder, safely enclosed in airbags, bounced to a stop about 95 seconds after first impact. The landing craft and rover were unharmed. About 3 hours after landing, when the Sun had risen on Mars, Pathfinder sent signals back to JPL. The solar panels began gathering power for the craft and the low gain antenna was found to be pointing to within 1 degree of Earth. The crew at JPL were amazed that everything went so smoothly, far better than their tests on Earth! The lander will act as a weather station and communications relay for the rover. The spacecraft still in orbit will image the Martian surface with a resolution of about 5 feet. Attempts will be made to locate the Viking landing sites of 21 years ago.
