They were designed to work for about 90 sols (days) on Mars…They just went over 1000 sols!! The Mars Rovers are going on close to three earth years of operation now! Why don’t we hear anything about this amazing NASA success??

I find it so incredible that I can be sitting on my couch in my living room looking at images that were taken on Mars only hours before. Looking at microscopic views of rocks, panoramas of the Martian landscape… it totally blows me away…. load the full-size image of the above picture and scroll from side to side. Look at the “waves” in the sand/dust/soil/whatever in the deepest part of the crater. 🙂 I should have studied harder….
