The rover Opportunity's watch has finally come to an end

Recommended Posts

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. The massive volcanoes in the northern Tharsis region that deform the curvature of the planet. I watched Phobos and Deimos glitter in the pre-dawn hours before the rising of Sol. All those moments will be lost in time, like the dust of Cydonia in the wind. Time to die.

He can no longer respond to your radio commands, convenient.

If I was a engineer on Opportunity, I would consider my life a success. Such an amazing achievement. I've said it before, but NASA is the best of us.

 

 

Goodbye, Opportunity. If we ever make it to Mars, you will be memorialized.

Didn't it lasting so long cause some budget issues for NASA, as they had planned to re-allocate personnel after it died? I mean, that's a great problem to have!

When you're so good at what you do you are forced to keep your job.

I still love the comic that was done of the rover, trying to prove himself useful so NASA would come back and get him. First time ever a comic brought tears to my eyes.
