Long Duration

In light of NASA's stated intention of "zeroing out the budget" (cancelling) missions such as MER Opportunity and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, this article about a mission that has been ongoing for forty years is of interest.

Why cancel Opportunity and LRO, NASA? An operating vehicle is worth a lot more to science and the public interest than a vehicle that is only on paper!
