Ten Years on Mars

Opportunity has spent ten years on the red planet, and is still pressing on. Ten years! The team that built our patient unbreathing harbinger built well.

Ten years. Savor that. Of course, it's a good thing we sent two. Spirit was declared beyond recovery in 2010, which is still not too shabby. Six years working on Mars is a pretty good epitaph. But ten is better.

And still Opportunity rolls onward.

What is beyond the next Martian hill? We will see.
