Even though she's stuck mobility impaired, 2000 is something to celebrate.

What kind of drinks & food should be served at a sol2000 party

I'm guessing a Red Rover is a natural http://www.thatsthespirit.com/en/drinks/re...p?recipe_id=186

and of course Mars Bar Rice Crispie squares http://www.donogh.com/cooking/csquares/mars.shtml

other ideas?

marsroverdriver Today we plan sol 1999 for Spirit (in advance; 1999 actually hits Monday-ish). Plenty of "party like sol 1999" jokes going around.



How about Troy Trifle

Layers and layers of cake, cream, fruit

Serves me right for not checking my twitter feed before posting that!

Has anyone made a 'let's all meet up in sol 2000' joke yet?


What about 'In sol 2525, If Spirit is still alive, If Oppy can survive...'


OK I've run out of song references now, you can stop throwing things at me. laugh.gif

No need to rush, there'll be another opportunity for bad music / sol jokes in just under four months time...

So...It's Sol 2241 for Spirit now. If Viking 1 gets credit for surviving 2245 Sols, Spirit will break that record if there's even a single data downlink after that, right? Hopefully we don't have to wait months to find out if that record will be broken!

So, I'm I right in thinking anything from now, even a single beep, and the baton is passed from Viking to Spirit?...

It has just struck me (I know I'm slow) that with Spirit likely to maintain radio silence for a while you will actually become OppyMars in about 20 sols time followed by, if all goes well, SpiritMars, later in the year. Suddenly, the genius of this plan to pretend we are 'stuck and can't speak at Troy' so that Oppy gets a little taste of the longevity records limelight has been revealed to me in all its glory... rolleyes.gif

You are absolutely right, this is why I prefer the generic "MER" name... Then, no problem choosing between the two rovers smile.gif
