 NASA's eveready rovers are still rollin around Mars
and sendin back postcards:


If the asteroid impacts Mars, the visual fields of the
rovers could be affected, if not profoundly or
catastrophically, at least in terms of seeing dust in
the upper atmosphere from the impact. It might be
thick enough to shutdown their solar power. ~Ian
