It is hard to believe that the Mars Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, have been on the surface for five years now. It was supposed to be a brief, 90 day mission and they're both still roaming.
It seems like that was just a short while ago and it has been five years. Time does fly. NASA does a remarkable job of keeping the public informed about what's going on. I just don't check in as often as I should.
We live with so much information these days, from so many sources, it's hard to keep it all organized in a fashion we can actually use. But, I love it that with a few mouse clicks I can find a NASA photo from the surface of Mars to share with you. We live in amazing times.
