Do Rovers Get Overtime Pay?

Because of the success of the MER's, NASA is extending their mission another 5 months. "Given the rovers' tremendous success, the project submitted a proposal for extending the mission, and we have approved it," Orlando Figueroa, Mars Exploration Program director at NASA. This extension will cost 15 million USD. "We're going to continue exploring and try to understand the water story at Gusev," said JPL's Mark Adler, deputy mission manager for Spirit. The RC team wishes the best to Spirit, Opportunity, and their respective ground teams.
