Mars Rovers celebrate 5 years on Mars

Actually, January 4 (UTC) was the touch down time of Spirit, Opportunity landed later on January 25 (UTC). Tom has a nice video of the anniversary. Emily Lakdawalla recounts her experience 5 years ago when the touchdown occurred, and looks back on some of the rovers key achievements. The Mars Rovers website has a spectacular animation of the rovers 5 year anniversary. Not bad for someting with an expected 40 day mission life.
