Bargain or bust?

I was musing about the remaining rover. It has gone SO far past it's warranty, I wonder why they have not pulled the plug. How many people are involved with keeping it on the road, processing the data etc? Gotta be a good chunk of change. I notice also the last flight of the shuttle has been postponed again and again. Are folks just trying to stay on the payroll?

Bargain
