    The Mars Rover Oppertunity was officially declared Dead today

     

    Quote

    The scientists waited to hear some response from their long-silent rover, which had been engulfed in a global dust storm last June, likely coating its solar panels in a fatal layer of dust. Since then, the team of scientists and engineers have sent more than 835 commands, hoping the rover will wake up from its long slumber—that perhaps winds on Mars might have blown off some of the dust that covered the panels.

    Quote

    Opportunity’s identical twin, Spirit, was pronounced dead in 2011, a year after it got stuck in sand and communication ceased.

    Both outlived and outperformed expectations, on opposite sides of Mars. The golf cart-size rovers were designed to operate as geologists for just three months, after reaching Mars in January 2004. They rocketed from Cape Canaveral a month apart in 2003.

      We'll have Opportunity back up and running in a couple decades, possibly sooner if this manned mission to mars works out.
