In August of 2012 NASA landed a rover on the surface of our neighboring planet Mars. It should provide some good research and fantastic pictures for some time to come. It is not without some persistence and patience that it is there. Of the 41 missions sent to Mars by various space agencies, 26 have failed.
“The failed spacecraft have blown up in Earth’s atmosphere, gone awry or silent on the journey through space, crashed on Mars, or failed to operate after landing.”
If something is important enough it may at times be necessary to try, and try again. We must not grow weary and quit the important tasks. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
