Mars News Briefing: 10 Years of Spirit & Opportunity

NASA leaders and scientists reflect on the work of Mars rover Opportunity during a Jan. 23 news conference at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena.

Opportunity landed on the Red Planet Jan. 24, 2004, three weeks behind a twin rover named Spirit. Both rovers made important discoveries about wet environments that could have supported microbial life on ancient Mars. Spirit stopped communicating with Earth in 2010, but Opportunity is continuing to provide scientific results, and currently is investigating the rim of a crater 14 miles (22 kilometers) wide.
