Default R.I.P. Mars Opportunity rover


NASA has declared the Mars Opportunity rover dead. It was last heard
from on June 10, 2018 so this isn't a surprise. And it has had a long
life with 15 years on Mars. Still it is sad to lose it.

Will the next solar rover have dust shield wiper blades?

Let's hope the next one has arms and legs.
