Scientific Wonders

Just thought we should take a moment to marvel at the wonders of science. Do you remember the Spirit and Opportunity Mars rovers. They landed on Mars in January 2004, expected to last for three months. Now, 44 months later, they have just weathered a Martian dust storm, and are continuing to function. They have given NASA scientists strong evidence that there was water flowing on Mars, and therefore, a possibility of life. Kudos to all involved. I know it is not an anniversery of the Rovers or anything, but each day they still work is an increidble testament to the people who built them, put them there, and keep them going.
