“The world expects many things from you. Don't be afraid. Know that you can live beyond all the expectations. Just keep going, keep communicating with the Earthlings, and keep sending them pictures. And don't forget that you are loved and admired by people all around the Earth. We can't wait for you to land on Mars!”

- Sofi Collis, who gave Spirit and Opportunity their names
