The present study does not include the primary mission, but Bill Clancey’s forthcoming monograph based on earlier research suggests that this is a long-standing practice. When anthropomorphizing the Rovers or discussing their activities in public, team members use the pronoun “she”: consistent with nautical terminology. But “she” or even “it” are rare within the operations context. The insiders’ term “we” is consistently used.What's odd to me is that I'm pretty sure I remember the previous probes being called "he". Were the others robots and this one is a vehicle (conceptually)? Am I misremembering?
