A team of about 50 men and women in white and blue cleanroom smocks and bonnets  stand and sit around their creations: Spirit and Opportunity.  The twin rovers of the Mars Exploration Rover mission are about the size of golf carts.  The significantly smaller, microwave-sized Sojourner rover from the 1997 Pathfinder mission sits in the middle.


Team members in JPL's Spacecraft Assembly Facility


It took many people to assemble, test and launch Spirit and Opportunity. Pictured here in JPL's Spacecraft Assembly Facility is just part of the team of engineers and technicians who were critical to the success of the mission. The team surrounds Spirit and Opportunity, with their predecessor, Sojourner, in the middle.
