Rover legacy

NASA's Spirit Mars rover is finally declared non-responsive after 6 years and 7.7km of exploring the Martian surface with damaged electronics and two lame wheels. Its twin, Opportunity, is still going strong, after 30km of exploration of 3 craters and on its way to a 4th crater, Endeavour.

These rovers were only supposed to last 3 months.Link
