A comparison of the Mars rovers

Curiosity had a flawless landing on Mars this week, but it's not the first rover to get to the red planet.

Check out our guide to the Mars rovers to learn more about not just Curiosity, but also its predecessors: Spirit, Opportunity and Sojourner!

    How about a little more basic information such as weight, general info about propulsion, materials used and so on? I don't think it's much to ask, and I know I can find it elsewhere, but wasn't that what reporting was at one time? Also, it was a great idea to put the duration of use in Martian terms, too bad that wasn't followed through on. This is such an amazing accomplishment, it would be great to see your organization honor it by finally picking up your game a litte.
