When Spirit and Opportunity landed in 2004, Emily Lakdawalla was with the science team in charge of a group of high-school students called the Red Rover Goes to Mars Student Astronauts. We're coming up on the 10th anniversary of the landings -- what have those "kids" grown up into? You'll meet many of them, hear about their experiences at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory 10 years ago, and find out what they're doing now.
