Good night, good Spirit!

Spirit was the Mars rover expected to last 90 days but in fact which kept soldiering on until a little over a year ago.  Since then, NASA has sent a daily call, but has had no response from Spirit.  Today they send their last message.  They're not expecting any response, but will keep listening for another month.

With deep respect, I lifted this cartoon from XKCD's blog.  You'll need to click it to view it big enough to read easily.

Ahh!
