A great read about the intricacies and sheer amount of blood, sweat and effort that went into making the MER a reality. You get a sense of how important the rovers really are to the people who created them, devoting large parts of their lives to the project.

I gained a new appreciation for just how big an accomplishment the landing of Curiosity is after reading this. The MER rovers paved the way for Curiosity, like Curiosity will hopefully pave the way for the first humans on Mars.

Definitely worth a read if you are interested in space exploration.
