Give Me Just a Little More Time

NASA Extends Mars Rovers' Mission

"NASA has approved an extended mission for the Mars Exploration Rovers, handing them up to five months of overtime assignments as they finish their three-month prime mission."
The report goes on to say that the mission got $15 million more to keep them going for 5 more months. What's cool is it's only an additional 2% investment that more than doubles the planned mission time. Hope they find something really interesting in the extra time.
