The End of Opportunity

NASA has ended the Mars Opportunity mission.  The rover's last transmission was that his battery was low and it was getting dark.  For a rover whose lifespan was supposed to be ninety days, the fourteen plus years spent on Mars was a major accomplishment.


  1. Wasn't that just fascinating? I love the pictures they have posted.

  2. Yes, wasn't the Mars River a fascinating project. It did become a living, breathing object, to us.

  3. Poor thing! Don't you wish you could send it a new battery?!
