NASA

2004: The Opportunity rover (MER-B) lands on surface of Mars, three weeks after its twin Spirit (MER-A), also part of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Mission, touched down on the other side of the planet. While Spirit became immobile in 2009 and ceased communications in 2010, Opportunity remains active as of 2013, having vastly exceeded its planned mission duration of roughly 92 days.
