|A Martian sunset photographed by the Spirit rover.|
The Spirit rover was designed to work for three months...
She explored the red planet for six years.
Spirit was built in Pasadena, not at all far from where I sit right now. Finally she rests, quietly gathering the dust of another world; her home planet, a pale blue star in the evening sky.
|Spirit turns her eyes towards home and snaps a picture of Earth (as seen in the Martian sky).|
