NASA says its Mars rover Spirit, which has been stuck in loose martian sand since April, is losing power due to a dust storm that's blocking its solar panels. The amount of electricity generated by the solar panels on Spirit has been declining for the past several Martian days, or sols, as a regional dust storm moved southward and blocked some of the sunshine at Spirit's location, the space agency said.
