NASA reports that Mars rover Spirit "recently overtook the classic Viking 2 Lander's spot as the second-longest-lasting spacecraft on the surface of Mars: 1290 sols (martian days) and counting!" Viking 2 was, of course, a mission from the 1970s, hence the funkedelic image above to celebrate. Apparently.
Meanwhile, according to this post on the Planetary Society blog, Opportunity is finally poised to descend into Victoria Crater.
Apologies if I'm lax on the blogging at the mo, I'm still feeling unwell, and having trouble thinking let alone typing. (For example, I just had to edit this post to change the label to Mars, from Pluto. Bit of a difference.)
