Two tiny satellites have fallen silent hundreds of millions of miles away, after proving new technology at Mars.The twin CubeSats, nicknamed WALL-E and EVE, shadowed NASA's InSight lander to Mars last year. As the lander descended to the Martian surface in November, the briefcase-size satellites flew past the red planet, providing real-time updates to ground controllers in this first-of-its-kind experiment.EVE went mum on Jan. 4; it's nearly 3.2 million kilometers past the red planet.
