Final Mission

I check the Mars Exploration Home Page fairly often for new pictures and an update on whats going on with Spirit and Opportunity. I also check the Astronomy Picture of the Day or APOD as it usually posts some good Mars pictures. (As well as some other interesting pictures).

I just came across this article that indicates that the 90 day mission of the rovers is nearing its end.

LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) — With their primary goal of finding signs of water on Mars achieved, NASA’s twin robot-geologists soon will make tracks across the Red Planet’s barren surface until their batteries run out, NASA officials said on Thursday.

Since the intial problems with the Spirit happened and were resolved there has not been that much coverage on this story in the news, at least off the internet.
