Let’s Hear It for the Twins

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 13:30

This is one place where NASA has given us more than our money’s worth.

Hopeful planners are already setting future operations for the twins, assuming the pair will continue to plow ahead but acknowledging that one or both of the rovers could fail at any time. After all, these robots aren’t exactly spring chickens. Spirit has been driving backwards since one of its wheels jammed in 2006, and a broken electrical wire has reduced movement of Opportunity’s robotic arm.

Good thing there are no VHS tapes of Hello, Dolly up there.
