Description: A NASA initiative which hopes to increase public support for the construction of robots for the use of extraterrestrial exploration.
NASA Robotics - Robotics Alliance Project NASA's Opportunity rover was built for a three-month mission on Mars, but continues to return valuable scientific data 10 years later. Opportunity, one of NASA's twin Mars Exploration Rovers, reached the Red Planet Jan. 24, 2004 (PST). It landed three weeks after its twin, named Spirit. Both rovers made important discoveries about wet environments that could have supported microbial life on ancient Mars. Spirit stopped communicating with Earth in 2010. Opportunity is continuing to provide scientific results, and currently is investigating the rim of a crater 14 miles (22 kilometers) wide.
