    Default RIP Mars Rover Opportunity

    Opportunity did not answer NASA’s final call, and it’s now lost to us

    But in fact, the young rover did not die. He instead went rogue, and is currently building an armada of sentient AI machines that can transform from spacecraft to mechwarriors. Their mission: Seek and Destroy the Earthlings.

    14 years isn't bad for something that was only supposed to last for 90 days

    Sleep well little feller. You did good.

    So a planet wide dust storm covered the solar panels with dust resulting in Oppys inability to charge its batteries so it shut itself down.
    Oppy's not dead - just asleep.

    I envision that sometime in the future there maybe a way for us to clean the dust off the panels and wake up this little rover.

    Sleep well little rover.

    PS -Everybody talks about Oppy's last message to NASA - but nobody talks about NASA's last message to Oppy, Which IMO is just as touching:

    NASA's last message to Opportunity was Billie Holiday's "I'll Be Seeing You." It ends with:

    I'll find you/ In the morning sun/ And when the night is new./ I'll be looking at the moon,/ But I'll be seeing you.
