IF YOU'RE the kind of amateur meteorologist desperate forweather reports from Mars, then relax - NASA is putting the whole Martian weather system on the world wide web.

NASA's Polar Lander, which is on the red planet's south pole, goes online today and anyone with Internet access can retrieve daily weather and climate data. Pictures, weather reports, science data and the first sound clips beamed to Earth from 157 million miles (252.6 million km) will all be accessible.
