Looks like its over. Many people have been posting here for more than a decade. Some who were here from the beginning are no longer with us. As a scientist I found it doubtful that any part of us continues to exist in some form after we are gone, but if it does, is it not so for the rovers? And if that can be, perhaps there is some metaphysical corner of existence where they all live on together.
So long and thanks for all the fish.
