    Opportunity Rover. End of mission. 2019-02-13

    Every once in a while xkcd hits you in the feels...

    Today's is a good one...

    For 15 years Opportunity has provided us with a window to another planet. When - not if, but when - we get there, I hope someone finds it, dusts it off and puts it in a place of honor. There's a Navy saying "Fair winds and following seas..." ... Not sure what the Martian equivalent should be, but I feel like there should be something.

    Does seem like a worthy scavenger hunt.
