The rover on Mars, Spirit may finally be failing.
The two rovers Spirit and Opportunity just celebrated a five year anniversary of being on Mars, which is far longer than anyone thought they would last.
NASA sent instructions to Spirit last weekend and claim the rovers got the instructions, but failed to act on them. NASA says cosmic rays could be causing interference with the instructions.
On Tuesday Spirit followed it’s instructions to find the sun, but not in it’s expected location. Diagnostic activities are now being planned to account for the unusual behavior.
