The Mars Exploration Rover mission landed two rovers on Mars in January 2004. The rovers' primary science objective is to read the record in the rocks and soils in order to search for evidence of past liquid water and to determine whether past environments were favorable for life. The twin rovers - Spirit and Opportunity - have been investigating two different landing sites, resulting in numerous exciting discoveries and providing tantalizing clues about past geologic activity on Mars. This talk will summarize the most important science findings.
