NASA's Mars Rover Opportunity Sets Longevity Record

"These rovers are going to die some day," Steve Squyres said in an interview with ABC News, "and I used to have this naive notion that maybe we'd get the place figured out as well as we possibly could before the rovers died, and when they did I'd say, 'OK, well, we've learned everything we could have learned with these things.'

"That's not going to happen. What I have come to realize is that there's always been something fascinating just out of our reach on the far horizon."
