|WASHINGTON Cheap Joe Namath Jersey , March 24 (Xinhua) -- NASA's Opportunity rover completed its first Red Planet marathon of 42.195 kilometers on Tuesday with a finish time of roughly 11 years and two months, the U.S. space agency said.
"This is the first time any human enterprise has exceeded the distance of a marathon on the surface of another world," John Callas, Opportunity project manager at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a statement.
The long-lived rover surpassed the marathon mark during a drive of 46.5 meters.
Last year, Opportunity became the long-distance champion of all off-Earth vehicles when it topped the previous record set by the former Soviet Union's Lunokhod 2 moon rover.
"This mission isn't about setting distance records Leonard Williams Jersey , of course; it's about making scientific discoveries on Mars and inspiring future explorers to achieve even more," said Steve Squyres, Opportunity principal investigator at Cornell University. "Still, running a marathon on Mars feels pretty cool."
Opportunity's original three-month prime mission in 2004 yielded evidence of environments with liquid water soaking the ground and flowing on planet's surface.
As the rover continued to operate far beyond expectations for its lifespan, scientists chose the rim of Endeavour Crater as a long-term destination.
Since 2011, examinations of Endeavour's rim have provided information about ancient wet conditions less acidic Joe Namath Jersey , and more favorable for microbial life, than the environment that left clues found earlier in the mission.
To celebrate the milestone, the rover team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory will run a marathon-length relay at the lab next week.

TOKYO, March 11 (Xinhua) -- Japan will risk losing the trust of the international community, and even being isolated if the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe continues its push to revise the country's pacifist constitution Cheap New York Jets T-Shirts , a Japanese historian said.
"The Article 9 of Japan's constitution renounces war and prohibits Japan from maintaining the war potential, which acts as the precondition of Japan's re-acceptance by the international community in the post-war era," Yutaka Yoshida, a professor at the Hitotsubashi University, told Xinhua in an interview Tuesday.
"Moreover, the pacifist constitution covers the shortage of post-war liquidation in Japan and reduces the concern over the country's military rebuilding. Thus Cheap New York Jets Hoodies , any intention to deny the results of trials by the International Military Tribunal for the Far East, or to revise the constitution, will make Japan lose its credibility to the world, or even be isolated diplomatically," said Yoshida.
Abe has adopted a series of policies to expand Japan's military power since taking office again in late 2012. Those moves, together with his attitude towards Japan's war-time history Customized New York Jets Jersey , upset not only its neighboring countries who have suffered from the aggression of the Japanese Imperial Army, but also the western world, especially Japan's ally, the United States.
Regarding this, Yoshida warned: "The impact of the Abe cabinet' s historical revisionism has internationalized. It is no longer a problem just affecting East Asia."
"Japan's historical conception has turned into an international issue since Abe paid a visit to the notorious Yasukuni Shrine in December 2013," Yoshida said. "The Obama administration Cheap New York Jets Jerseys , in a rare move, expressed its disappointment. To the United States, the political disputes following the visit have disturbed the stability of East Asia and even had negative effects on the U.S. security."
German Chancellor Angela Merkel also urged Japan to face up to its history squarely and openly during a visit to Japan earlier this week. On Monday, she referred to Germany's own experience and hinted that Japan also needs to take war-time responsibility.
Echoing her words, Yoshida said Japan should learn lessons from the past to avoid repetition of the tragic war.
Yoshida also voiced his concerns about the Abe government's decision last week to give uniformed Self Defense Forces (SDF) officers greater power. "Civilian control over the military was born from the bitter lesson the nation learned from having foolishly gotten itself into WWII. If this backbone is destroyed, the SDF may run amok."
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the anti-fascist war victory. Looking back into the past Darryl Roberts Jets Jersey , Yoshida said the painful memories of the WWII is key to preventing Japan from militarization again.
At a time when victims of the war are passing away and memories fading, it is important to let the future generations remember the history, he said.
