Quickly - To Mars!

Earth (or home as it's otherwise known)

We really need to get that Mars programme rolling to go and bring the poor little rover home*. Seriously though; given it was supposed to last 90 days, it’s been one hell of a successful mission!

It’s just possible that my youth may have been overly influenced by such things as Short Circuit, Doctor Who’s K9, and friendly robots like Twiki. I think that Spirit deserves to be brought home, or at least have a museum built around it so the nasty Martian dust won’t bother its solar cells.
