Watch and Celebrate Five Years on Mars

I've just finished watching this recent lecture given by one of my favourite astronomers, Dr. Steve Squyres. In it, he shares the thrills and challenges of the Mars Exploration Rover Mission. Five years after landing on Mars in January 2004, the twin rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, are still studying the Red Planet. They were originally planned as three-month missions.
