Amazing Mars Robots
These little guys were designed to last 90 Martian days. They are now in their third year of operation. The team that designed, delivered, and manage the Mars Rovers deserve a lot of credit. This also says a lot for robotic exploration of space. A manned mission could never have sustained such a long data collection mission.
