astroengine writes “One year after NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Spirit stopped communicating with Earth, mission managers have announced that they will give the stranded rover one more month to send a signal before they scale back the search. But things aren’t looking good. In the words of JPL-based Mars rover driver Scott Maxwell, “Spirit was so close to us, just a year ago.
