From Wiki : Spirit, MER-A (Mars Exploration Rover -- A), is a robotic rover on Mars, active from 2004 to 2010. It was one of two rovers of NASA's ongoing Mars Exploration Rover Mission. It landed successfully on Mars at 04:35 Ground UTC on January 4, 2004, three weeks before its twin, Opportunity (MER-B), landed on the other side of the planet. Its name was chosen through a NASA-sponsored student essay competition. The rover became stuck in late 2009, and its last communication with Earth was sent on March 22, 2010.
The rover completed its planned 90-sol mission. Aided by cleaning events that resulted in higher power from its solar panels, Spirit went on to function effectively over twenty times longer than NASA planners expected following mission completion. Spirit also logged 7.73 km (4.8 mi) of driving instead of the planned 600 m (0.4 mi), allowing more extensive geological analysis of Martian rocks and planetary surface features. Initial scientific results from the first phase of the mission (the 90-sol prime mission) were published in a special issue of the journal Science.
On May 1, 2009 (5 years, 3 months, 27 Earth days after landing; 21.6 times the planned mission duration), Spirit became stuck in soft soil. This was not the first of the mission's "embedding events" and for the following eight months NASA carefully analyzed the situation, running Earth-based theoretical and practical simulations, and finally programming the rover to make extrication drives in an attempt to free itself. These efforts continued until January 26, 2010 when NASA officials announced that the rover was likely irrecoverably obstructed by its location in soft soil, though it continued to perform scientific research from its current location.
The rover continued in a stationary science platform role until communication with Spirit stopped on sol 2210 (March 22, 2010). JPL continued to attempt to regain contact until May 24, 2011, when NASA announced that efforts to communicate with the unresponsive rover had ended. A formal farewell was planned at NASA headquarters after the Memorial Day holiday and was televised on NASA TV.

Hope you enjoyed it!

"Going to other planets has taught us something very important. It has taught us that it costs more than it is worth. What are these people thinking? Millions of children are starving; would they really rather spend the money going to Mars than feeding them?"-an excerpt from "The Present" on the truth contest site (google it). It is time to have more intuition as a human race to do the right things while we are here. That book will change the present course of humanity to a heaven on Earth. Just give the 1st pg. a try; you will not be let down.

People saying space missions are a waste of money and that we should spend money solving our problems on earth, do you enjoy your cellphone and modern medical technology? That's cool. You wouldn't have those if it wasn't for the 1960's efforts to get to the moon. These efforts do nothing but make humanity strive forward. That means advances in technology. The technology that's being used to reach mars today will be what's used to make the technology of tomorrow that our kids and grandkids will be using. Stop trying to argue against basic advancement.
