Spirit

I remember when Spirit landed on Mars. I listened and watched at two in the morning with my wife telling me I was crazy. Now, we may have lost Spirit. Six years past her 90 day warranty, Spirit may not tell us anything more about Mars.

“It will be the miracle from Mars if our beloved rover phones home,” said Doug McCuistion, director of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program in Washington. “It’s never faced this type of severe condition before – this is unknown territory.”

Opportunity, which is en-route to a large crater named Endeavour, remains in good health. This week, it sent home its first picture of a Martian dust devil.
