Five Years on Mars

NASA's Mars rovers are celebrating their fifth birthday on the Red Planet, far exceeding their original operating life span of 90 days. To everyone's surprise, Spirit and Opportunity continue rolling around the planet's surface, conducting experiments and making discoveries. NASA has put together a video to mark the anniversary(1), as well as a new panoramic image of Mars(2).
