Is anyone else just thrilled that Spirit and Opportunity are still functioning on Mars? They touched down in January of 2004 and continue to transmit data. Opportunity is still rolling along, even.

Oops, I mean... um... work, work, work, nose to the grindstone and all that...

It really boggles the mind. The original plan was to have them each operational for three months, tops. We were impressed at a conference in November 2004 that they were still rolling.

Best. NASA project. evar.

To me, it weirdly seems like something is telling us that we are doing the right thing, like some kind of blessed endeavor. Maybe that's a little far-fetched, I don't know...
