The last surviving Martian rover, Opportunity, is still roving. I find this mission to be simply amazing. Martian day 2681 on a mission expected to last just ninety. It’s almost silly. Except that it’s Mars–and Mars is definitely not the stuff of silly.
I used to surf to the official site regularly, but the excess of success has even produced an inner yawn in me. A couple thousand days past expectations–what’s another year?
