Popular Science - - 75 -

The twin rovers Op­por­tu­nity and Spirit were sup­posed to last for 90 days. In­stead, Spirit trans­mit­ted for six years. Op­por­tu­nity, now a teenager, is still trekking. Pathfinder may have been the first Mars rover, but Op­por­tu­nity’s amaz­ing en­durance shows how far we can push our tech­nol­ogy on a hos­tile alien world.
