Five Years of Achievements for Mars Rovers

The Mars rover Spirit had performed beyond expectations by surviving almost 20 longer than its predicted lifespan of 3 months. By now, the rover had been operating on the surface of the Red Planet for five years. Sharing Spirit’s indomitable spirit (bad pun intended) is Opportunity, which, on 24 January, will reach the five year milestone as well.
