Farewell, Spirit

Today is the last day NASA will be sending out a call for our wayward rover, Spirit.  As an exploration platform, it exceeded expectations by such a dramatic extent that to call it a fantastic success would be a terrible understatement.

Sometime a bit more than a year ago, we stopped receiving responses from it, but have been continuing to send out a call.  The hope (however slim) that we might get a response was still there.  But it’s time to turn the lights off.

Farewell, Spirit.  You did an Olympian’s job, little fella.
