Even on Mars…



From the AP, a story on the malfunctioning Rover states:

"Spirit, the first of the $820 million twin rovers sent to Mars to determine if it was once a wetter world capable of sustaining life, began to malfunction on Wednesday, nearly three weeks after landing on the planet's Gusev Crater....

"Engineers believe some sort of underlying hardware problem triggered the crisis that has wreaked havoc with Spirit's software and forced the rover to reboot its computer more than 60 times."

Somehow, that makes me feel better when my earth-bound computer has to be rebooted, and rebooted, and rebooted, and rebooted, and rebooted, and rebooted, and rebooted....
