The dust is clearing on Mars and both of NASA's rovers,
Spirit and Opportunity, are slowly resuming activity after 6 weeks of
waiting. Power collected from Opportunity's solar panels has reached
300 watt-hours which is enough to run a typical house light for 3-5
hours. Daily communication and a little movement is now possible.
Everyone involved in the design and development of these tenacious little robots should get a big, fat raise.
(As an aside, if anyone knows of any company producing a high-quality model kit or toy of either of these robots, please let me know.)
Think it's unofficial but :
Read somewhere that official rights to a kit was sold to Lego, but who knows?
