Nice "Selfie". Certainly a bit on the dusty side. Wonder how much out put they get from those solar cells now?


Super engineering and has lasted far beyond expectations.


The voyager probes never cease to amaze me. I was inspired by their visits to the outer planets from the late 70 to late 80s. Now, well on it's way to 40 years and still going!


Superb work on all these projects.

Amazing little rover. Happy 10th Birthday Opportunity  :clap2:

Its exceeded its 90 day (sol) mission by 9 years 274 (earth) days.


They should have put one of those 'rocket air blowers' on board though  :lol:

Its amazing it can generate any juice with the solar panels looking light that

Heres the (self) image again...
