we lost a good one this past week. -

after nearly 15 years of exploring the surface of mars the unmanned rover mission, Opportunity, came to an end earlier this week. in june of 2018 the rover lost contact with earth due to a violent sandstorm and it wasn’t until this past tuesday that NASA attempted one final time to make contact with the rover, to no avail. -

Opportunity, fondly nicknamed Oppy, was originally only intended for a 90 martian-day journey; however, this heroic little pioneer remained in solitude on the great red planet for nearly 15 years gathering and sending data back to earth.

rest easy, my friend. you did well. (2004-2018)
