I, Rover

The journalists seem to have missed the fact that JPL developed a wonderful new artificial intelligence for Spirit and Opportunity. It’s such a high level of intelligence, in fact, that it immediately took to blogging. However, we seemed to have forgotten the important datum for Spirit’s AI, gender development software. While he seems to think that he and Opportunity are both male, their creaters seem to lean towards female. I knew we should’ve picked them up and looked underneath before we sent them out to Mars…

Lest anyone worry, I’m fairly certain that the software guys patched Movable Type to work around the latency issue.
