5 years ago

Curiosity touched down on Mars....

And has been sending data back ever since.

5 years.

on a planned 2 year lifetime and mission.

For once, we got our money's worth from a Government project. (and NASA, at that!).

Amazing what happens when NASA is tasked with science instead of Muslim outreach.

And don't forget one of the two that landed January 25, 2004

"As of August 4, 2017, Opportunity is still roving the surface of Mars, and is slated for further scientific exploration."

13 frigging years from an original 90 earth day mission.
