Mars Rover Spirit

Both Rovers Spirit and Opportunity are working five years well past their “Use By” date. Spirit Landed on January 4th, 2004. For the past three months, Spirit has been stuck in sand, and no amount of research or maneuvering seems to get it out.

So they are thinking of shutting it down or just using what working sensor modules on it for data right where it is stuck.
