They're still running

The Spirit rover is only 70m from the top of a hill. One hopes it will have a good view from up there.

And Opportunity is still working, too.

I'm beginning to wonder whether the end of their missions will be not the rovers breaking down, but budget cuts at this end. They were only expected to work for 3 months, yet this is now 18 months later.
