10 years. 10 YEARS. TEN YEARS!!!!

A decade of exploration to celebrate with the Mars Exploration Rovers.
Ten years ago an incredible little adventurer with indomitable 'spirit' landed in Gusev Crater.

After an incredible journey across rugged plains, climbing mountains and discovering evidence of volcanic activity and sulphate soils, we lost our little girl just a few years ago. But her sister drives on, continuing the adventure.

Thank you Spirit. We will always remember you.
It's been an amazing 10 years. A wonderful 10 years.

Thank you as always to those who cared for her and to those who continue to push forward across the dusty face of Mars. smile.gif

I made another short video of a navcam 3D model colorized with pancam images. This time of Spirit's "Seminole" panorama location.
