The biggest revelation was the possible geyserite found in old Spirit images, which, though dead, still delivers new findings.

Fantastic article,Mr.C.G.! I kinda lost track of some of the developments on Mars this year from the two remarkable Rovers still chugging along. Great to know Spirit's data -set still providing exciting info, too.
Continued good luck to the JPL/industry teams providing our eyes and ears on Mars, so-to-speak! 8)

The Mars rovers have rewritten our understanding of Mars several times over, it is good to know that they are doing well. Excellent overview, and hopefully they will be featured in year-in-reviews for some time to come :)

Wow what a great article. It was like a book that I couldn't put down. I started reading it and constantly finding myself backing up to compare what I had just read with something said earlier. It was a really, really interesting read.
Thanks Chris. Awesome!

Actually the mission scientists have done that.  That rovers have not written a thing. ;)
