Perfection


Every once in a while, scientific perfection in the way of hardware design appears. The two Mars rovers, Spirit and Opportunity come to mind along with the Planck, an exquisitely designed space craft developed to measure the microwave background radiation of the universe by cooling its sensors down to 0.1 degrees above absolute zero via liquid Helium.



Originally, the Mars Rovers mission was targeted for 90 days, it's now going on 7 years, a testimony to visionary engineering without question.
