  1. Sojourner

    Sojourner was Mars Pathfinder's robotic miniature Mars rover, and explored Mars for around three months. It had front and rear cameras and several science experiments. It was designed for a mission lasting 7 sols, with possible extension to 30 sols. In fact it was active for 83 sols, until the base station had its last communication with Earth at 3:23 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on September 27, 1997. The rover needed the base station to talk to Earth, despite still functioning at the time communications ended. The final resting place of Sojourner is still not known as of 2012, although the proposed Mars Geoscience Imaging at Centimeter-Scale orbiter might be able to find it. The rover's name, Sojourner, means "traveler", and was selected in an essay contest won by a 12 year old from Connecticut, USA. It is named for Sojourner Truth. It had solar panels and a non-rechargeable battery, which allowed limited nocturnal operations. Once the batteries depleted, it could only operate during the day. The batteries were lithium-thionyl chloride and could provide 150 watt-hours. Additionally, 0.22 square meters of solar cells could produce a maximum of 15 watts, depending on conditions.
