See what the rover saw. In 15 years on Mars, Oppy caught sight of meteorites, “blueberries,” a “jelly doughnut” and other exotic rock formations.

Opportunity explores Mars

Opportunity was the rover that lived. NASA landed the solar-powered rover on Mars in 2004 and it outlasted its original three-month mission timeline by many, many years. 

Opportunity snapped this mosaic in 2011 after winds cleaned dust off its solar panels. 

The dust turned out to be problem for Oppy in June 2018 when a global dust storm caused it to go silent, leaving NASA out of touch with its longest-lived Mars rover.
