After completing it's 90 day mission and then continuing on for 6 additional
years the Mars rover Spirit is stuck for good.  These robots (Spirit and
Opportunity) were/are a huge inspiration to me in my robotic endeavors.
It's dumb to anthropomorphizing a robot, but it's been our human presence on
another planet for so long.  I feel bad for the little guy.
