On a small red light in the night sky lives hundreds of pounds of thinking metal sent from Earth. I used to tell it what to do. (Opinions mine, not Google's.)

I made this gingerbread rover ages ago. I think it ended up in a Pasadena newspaper at some point.

Truly loving the outpouring of support for Opportunity as the rover braves the strongest dust storm we've EVER seen on . ❤️ If you have Opportunity-themed art, poetry, etc., let's share it with the hashtag !

Thanks! Next car is likely to be either a Volt or the Hyundai Ioniq. I've now test-driven both, and I liked both -- unfortunately, the test drives didn't help rule either one out, so now I'm screwed. ;-) (But seriously, it's great to have more than one good choice!)

Worst-case estimates ~ 2-3 months(!), though it might just be weeks. Either way, if power levels dropped low enough that Opportunity lost track of time, recovery procedures will be time-consuming even once the storm clears, so it might be a while before we're back on track!

Opportunity, though not by much: she landed in 2004, and my Prius is a 2005!

It's a Prius, and its hybrid battery pack died. It *can* be fixed, but doing that costs more than the car is worth at this point -- so as much as I love the car, it just doesn't make financial sense. :-( :-(

Nope. She's out of contact for now, and she'll get back to us when the storm clears. For now, she's just focusing on staying alive.

I am sure they never turned on PHX's microphone, but I don't recall why. There's probably info about it at somewhere ....
