Opportunity

Today, after 15 years of operation, NASA announced it has ceased communication efforts with the Opportunity.
He was originally supposed to work for 90 days and take photos and examine samples of Martian soil around the landing. Eventually, Mars ran for 15 years and spent more than 42 kilometers, which is a record.
This has ranked among such astronauts like Voyager, Cassini. HUbble or Kepler.
I'm gonna miss that one.

At least I have his model at home.
It's not made of paper but it's metal.
Today I present it as a memory.


Metal puzzle.

paper versions of Opportunity and Spirit are available at Jon Leslie's website.
Along with the Curiosity rover as well.

Nice paint job in the metal earth kit! I hang mine on my Christmas tree. Until last summer I also had the Lego kit. Which I photographed and combined with a JPL pic to put myself on Mars!

That Lego kit looks fun! I should get around to memorializing Opportunity with a model. What a good little rover.
