NASA bade farewell to the Opportunity rover


That night, NASA officially announced the completion of the Opportunity Mars Rover mission. He worked on the Red Planet for about fifteen years, and in the summer of last year he was in a dust storm and lost contact with Earth.

Yesterday, NASA made another attempt to establish contact with Opportunity, but it was more of a formal nature – for more than six months the rover did not transmit signals, and this time the miracle did not happen either. After finding a connection problem, NASA sent Opportunity more than 800 teams, but it did not show signs of life.

Since 2004, the rover has traveled 28 miles, collecting a huge amount of data on the state of the surface and soil of the Red Planet.
