Spirit lives on!!

Sad news today that Spirit will remained parked. Spirit will still be conducting experiments. What a trooper. Good job NASA


I’d prefer to say “it is enjoying retirement with its toes in the sand on the beach” !!

It’s not retired, it can still dig!

It didn’t retire. It just got a better job offer, and quit to take it.

Spirit and Opportunity have outlived literally thousands of FRC robots, since they touched down around kickoff in 2004!

I think it’s pretty amusing that when Spirit breaks down and can no longer do research on little rocks, NASA decides to use Spirit to research the largest rock it can find, the core of Mars. :smiley:
