The Little Rovers That Could

Give it up for the Mars rovers Opportunity and Spirit, who are currently in the 14th month of what was supposed to be a 3-month mission. Helped by what's surely a great design and some good luck (Spirit's panels got blown clean by a wind gust), they're still driving around and collecting data, and NASA's announced that they're funding the project for another 18 months.

Surely, this is great news for NASA, and hopefully paves the way for future exploration.
