Beginning of the End?

After driving around and collecting data for several dozen times longer than originally planned, Spirit and Opportunity are starting to sound like some of the cars I drove in high school. Even given the ingenuity of the rover teams, it looks as if both rovers have more sols behind them than in front. Still, what an amazing run.

On a related note, just a little reminder that there is no law of the universe that says English will be spoken in the first lunar colony.
