Seems to happen with every Mars mission now, it goes good for awhile and then... nothing!
Are we being lied to so they can hide info from us?
Is there aliens there sabotaging the missions?
What is going on here?

Space exploration is still very primitive in the overall scheme of things I believe.
I think all people involved on the mars exploration project should be commeneded for even getting as far as they have with the project.
Find the problem...make sure it doesn't happen again...and do better next time...

Lots of good comments, if landing a probe on mars is so difficult and the odds of success are not that great as some posters here suggested then why such ambitious projects then from NASA?
Maybe they should keep the probes much simpler and just send more of them? Would that make exploring Mars more successful?
I meant with this rover technology...
