Are you interested in knowing more about rovers? Part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover project, two mobile robots named Spirit (launched June 10, 2003) and Opportunity (July 7, 2003) were sent to traverse the Red Planet in search of signs of past life. Since landing on Mars in 2004, Opportunity has made a number of discoveries about the Red Planet including dramatic evidence that long ago at least one area of Mars stayed wet for an extended period and that conditions could have been suitable for sustaining microbial life. The Opportunity rover is still actively exploring the Martian terrain, having far outlasted her planned 90-day mission.
