Mars24 is a Java-based application which displays a Mars "sunclock", a graphical representation of Mars showing the current sun- and nightsides of Mars, along with a numerical readout of the time in a 24-hour format. Other displays include a plot showing the relative orbital positions of Mars and Earth and a diagram showing the position of Sun and Earth for a given location on Mars.
What's New
Version 7.0.1:
  • Updated MSL landing coordinates from target lon-lat to touchdown lon-lat. The difference between landing site LMST and the mission clock remains a few seconds, but in the opposite direction.
  • Bugfix: Difference in decimal character caused localization problems in reading and saving preference values and in handling some input text field contents.
  • Bugfix: Trapping of illegal input of latitude values missed some possible cases.
  • Bugfix: (Mac only) Correct version number shown in finder Get Info window.

What version of StuffIt Expander are you using to uncompress? The help page says there's a conflict between the compressed package and Expander 8.0.0 that can cause this.

Cool! It seems that some people at NASA are using Macs! Nice little program - it's fun to see where all the different mars probes landed - and view all the different projections..

Check it out.

I hapened to catch the PBS program NOVA about the Mars rovers. In many scenes of engineers and scientists sitting around tables discussing aspects of the project i could see the Apple logo on the lids of laptops, and in at least one scene someone was typing information on a silver Powerbook!

Hey, these people are at the cutting edge. What else would they own? :)

I am a Mars scientist, and I can confirm that many of us do prefer Macs; it's not at all uncommon to see as many Macs as (or more than) PCs at professional meetings. See my reply to the next comment down as to the utility of this expenditure of tax dollars...
