All of us are waiting Oppy's arrival at Victoria crater in a few days crossing all fingers (up to 10 wink.gif ) untill we'll receive the very first pictures. I went back to my calendar of events for both MER vehicules and realize that, if everything go right, we'll have a LOT of celebrations at least for the next 2 months. Have a look at this and get preapared smile.gif :

28-sept 1000 Earth days Spirit
08-oct 2000 Earth days Total
15-oct 11 time duration Spirit
19-oct 1000 Earth days Oppy
26-oct 1000 Sols Spirit
29-oct 1.5 martian year for Spirit
04-nov 11 time duration Oppy
05-nov 2000 Sols Total
08-nov 3 martian years Total

Put Spirit out to stud? Or....whatever you'd do, given that these rovers are generally given female personas instead of male.
