The little rover that could

The Spirit rover is now officially stuck on the surface of Mars and will now be treated as a stationary science station. It's sad that it's no longer to wonder the landscape as was intended but the rover has outlived it's intended life span of 90 days by nearly 25 times! It's twin rover Opportunity continues to explore the Martian surface on the opposite side of the planet. It's just hard to believe that they have been on the surface since's a fantastic testament to good design and engineering.
