Mars rover selfies!
Continuing with this week’s celebration of Opportunity: These are two self portraits Opportunity took on mars - a composite images of several photos it took with it’s camera. The first was taken after about 300 days on Mars. Opportunity is still looking pretty slick. But after enduring several Martian winters, it’s caked with so much dust, it blends right into the ground.
Amazingly, those solar panels are still providing power - and the journey continues. Crazy! Most cars can’t last 10 years without a single trip to the mechanic.
