reports come back that the latest rover mission may be failing because it's stuck on a 3 inch rock and can't wiggle it's way off . . .

I think I read somewhere that the rovers accomplished in six years what an actual human geologists (or areologist in this case) could do in an afternoon. Robots are great, but they are very slow.
