spirit and opportunity

“Opportunity and its twin, Spirit, began their fifth year on Mars last month, far surpassing their prime missions of three months…they have worked 16 times longer than planned, driven 20 times farther than planned…” 

Does this impress anyone, or just me, that these little rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, are still going, better than any energizer bunny? I always did believe they were special. Someone got a good deal on that warranty. 😉

If you haven’t kept on on them lately, do that here @Nasa
