Talk about serendipity. It has managed to sample and analyse samples
from 3 landing sites , not just the intended one site. As long as the
cliff/ crater rim does not collapse on it , then it will likely survive
closest approach to the sun . That was not in the original plan as the
electronics would have fried , out in the open
