Twin rovers Spirit and Opportunity

Twin rovers Spirit and Opportunity
Twin rovers Spirit and Opportunity NASA sent Spirit and Opportunity to Mars for a three-month tour. The rovers had other ideas. Even though Spirit landed in the harsh environs of Gusev Crater, she lived more than six years, sent home 128,000 raw images, roved and hiked for 7.72 kilometers (4.8 miles), and sent home a couple of the mission’s “greatest science hits.” Opportunity is 14 years old and has sent home more than 250,000 raw images, driven 45.09 kilometers (28.02 miles), has delivered a few of her “greatest science hits” and is still roving.
