    Most of the news today was simply reading the writing on the wall. The Mars rover, Opportunity, spent 15 years as the "little rover who could". Solar powered, it outlasted its twin, Spirit, by virtually all of its 15 years of exploration on Mars. The newer rovers are atomic powered, not dependent on the sun. Opportunity outlived its projected life-span by an amazing number of years. I, for one, will miss it, and I applaud the crew of technicians who have kept "Oppy" functional on Mars, giving it a longer that expected recovery time after one of Mar's "worst ever" dust storm that covered Oppy's solar collection panels.. I would like to believe that a miracle could still come true, but Oppy has been without power for so long that I fear damage to the computers. NASA is thrilled that OPPY was as successful as it was, but equally sad to "pull the plug" on this plucky little rover. Curiosity is now the rover we will follow and cheer for. Saying good-bye to Oppy is kind of emotional for me, but those of us in science have to cheer for all those extra years that Oppy sent data back to Earth, doing its part in paving the way for human's to colonize Mars. Science builds on the shoulders of the science that has gone before.
