A celebration commemorating a decade of Mars exploration by NASA's twin Mars Exploration rovers, Spirit and Opportunity. The rovers landed on opposite sides of Mars in January 2004 for what was expected to be 90-day missions. Spirit operated for six years and ceased communicating with Earth in 2010. The Opportunity rover continues exploring today, 10 years after landing.
This show includes:
-- Charles Elachi, director, JPL
-- Steve Squyres, principal investigator, Mars Exploration Rover mission, Cornell
-- John Callas, project manager, Mars Exploration Rover mission, JPL
-- Bill Nye, chief executive officer of the Planetary Society, Pasadena, Calif.
