Mars rovers roll on to five years

January 3rd, 2009 No comments

Via the BBC:

“The US space agency’s (NASA) Mars rovers are celebrating a remarkable five years on the Red Planet.

The first robot, named Spirit, landed on 3 January, 2004, followed by its twin, Opportunity, 21 days later.

It was hoped the robots would work for at least three months; but their longevity in the freezing Martian conditions has surprised everyone. The rovers’ data has revealed much about the history of water at Mars’ equator billions of years ago.”

The advances in electronics, robotics and communications these planetary missions demonstrate are absolutely amazing!
