Some 5,000 miles away from the limelight surrounding Curiosity's every move, Opportunity this week quietly embarks on its tenth year of exploration -- a sweet milestone since it was only tasked to work for three months.
Spirit, on the other hand, landed in a less interesting spot and had to drive some distance to find geologic evidence of past water. After six productive years wheeling around, it fell silent in 2010, forever stuck in Martian sand.
Actually it doesn't. One could conceivably be all-powerful but not exceptionally intelligent.
Cool stuff and cost effective. We can probably find out lots more this way than trying to put humans there. Humans would want to take a break after 10 minutes. Opportunity has gone 10 years without one.
Just imagine, those rovers will be there for as long as Mars exists. Long after mankind is gone, who or what might discover them and wonder how the heck they got there?
