The Mars Rovers are still going and outlasting their expected lifespan. It all comes as a delight to NASA. I, too, am delighted for the exploration and knowledge we may gain from these experiments. As if outlasting expected usefulness were not enough, the news is reporting that the Rovers have also received an unexplained boost in power. NASA surmises that dust, which may have settled on the Rover solar panels, thus inhibiting optimum absorption of solar energy, has somehow been "wiped" off the panels. Hmmmmm. How could this be?

Here is my explanation for NASA: This + this = Clean rover panels!
