January 3 Science History

2004 - Mars rover Spirit lands on Mars.


NASA's Mars Exploration Rover landed on the surface of Mars. It was designed to act as a wandering robotic geologist to sample the soil in the area near its lander. The original plan was for the rover to travel for 40 meters a day with a lifetime range of 1 kilometer, but is still operational as of its six year anniversary.
