RIP: Mars Rover Spirit

We sadly note the official word that Mars Rover Spirit has been officially deemed dead.  NASA and JPL have not heard from Spirit since March 2010, and in May 2011 they officially announced stopping efforts to communicate.  It’s been a wonderful six years of interesting science and fascinating engineering.  Kudos to NASA and JPL.  Thanks for the great ride!
