Three Years Later and Still Going Strong

The Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity are still rolling around on the surface after nearly three years and a combined driving distance of nearly 10.5 miles. The original mission was for 90 martian days.

No one is a bigger critic of NASA than I am, especially the space station and shuttle divisions. (An example of the pointless being enabled by the absurd if there ever was.) But there are still smart people being properly managed and accomplishing incredible things buried in the NASA bureaucracy.
