Poor old Spirit

Stuck, at last, in the sand. Mind you, they’ve given it a good go trying to get it out for the past nine months or so. And what’s really amazing is that it was supposed to last only 90 days, and has been going for six years. And it hasn’t stopped yet – most of the kit on board is still working, it’s just stuck. An amazing feat of engineering.

The last word, though, has to go to Warren Ellis on twitter: "Martian rover Spirit stuck in sand for good: which is of course what happens when you give a human’s job to a skateboard."
