This comic strip attempts to project the insecurities and emotional fragility of a human (the Author) onto the Spirit rover, a robot that performed its data-collecting tasks on Mars over 20 times longer than planned (before getting stuck in soft sand).

Thankfully, the spirit rover could never have experienced these emotions, as it is simply a mechanical device whose motions and actions give it the perception of agency.
