    Fortunately, vehicles named Rover on mars have a better reputation than those on earth.

    Somebody should form a Space Force to go up and recharge the battery.

    Don’t you wish your computer’s operating system could go 15 years before it blue-screened?

    Actually, one of those things they make better than they ‘used to.’

    And those nerds and geeks programmed and poured their combined skill and love into that remote explorer, as if it was an extension of themselves.

    The mission was to last 90 days. They over-engineered it and it lasted more than 14 years.

    So much for that “gubmint incompetency” argument by the RWNJs, eh?

    And it’s last words were “My battery is low and it’s getting dark.”

    Thank you, Phil. And thank you to the men and women of NASA who poured their souls and skills into this little robot millions of miles away. And they didn’t do it for profit. Why did they do it?

    ‘cause it’s bitchen

    And somewhere in the Opportunity control room, one engineer said to his boss:

    “It’s dead, Jim.”
