Contact was lost with Spirit on March 22, 2010 after six years of operation from this 90-day rover. The circumstances that ultimately led the loss began years before the rover’s end, with Spirit’s survival always in question. But it was those same challenges to survival that resulted in Spirit’s greatest discoveries. Come hear the story of survival and discovery on the surface of the Red Planet.
The JPL Stories program, sponsored by the Library, Archives, and Records Section, celebrates the Lab’s unique environment and history, and provides an informal way for JPLers to share their stories with each other.
