I think maybe we just have a rebellious "Spirit"

by Steven Haninger / January 28, 2009 8:19 PM PST

Ok so the rover won't confess what it did on the weekend, refuses to obey some commands, and says it cannot do others. Teens do this, don't they?

Me thinks Spirit may have found a Martian girlfriend. Happy

Overall, I've found this mission has been amazing and fun to check in on from time to time

I read somewhere that the "parents" got tired of waiting for the rover to quit, so they're just letting it run wild. Happy Anyway, they keep learning from it.

Highly skeptical of that claim.

Where did you see that they got tired of waiting for the rover to quit?

Heck, they've lasted so long when its suppose to be dead by now. I figure like they did, some cosmic rays or just the extremes are getting to the rovers. Afterall, they done more than their fair share of work. Allow them to park in the sun forever and just beep away.

I wish they had some "flybots" that can rover via the air then return to mama and roost, u/l'ing the data. Just a thought... -----Willy Happy
