You know I’m a huge space geek, right? I’ve been following the travels of the Mars Spirit and Opportunity rovers for 15 years now, and I’m sorry to report that the Opportunity rover has finally stopped working. NASA and the public sure got their money’s worth out of this beauty. It was designed to last just 3 months, but kept chugging away for 15 years, traveling 28 miles over the Martian surface.
Opportunity’s twin “Spirit” did pretty well too, roaming the Red Planet from 2004-2010.
