During the press conference, NASA said that Opportunity had not responded to the last attempt to establish a connection on Tuesday. 2018 June 10 The planetary-covered dust stormwith Opportunity, preventing solar storage. Since then, up to 830 rescue teams have been drawn to the rover.
On Tuesday night, despite the transfer of teams and Billie, I will see you on Mars through the Deep Space Network, it could not be overwhelmed.
"This morning, I learned that we didn't hear back," Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator at the NASA Science Mission Directorate, said at a press conference.
"I am here with deep gratitude and gratitude [and]. About Twitter
The History of Opportunities is Resistance, Discovery, and Miracle, a record breaker that proves that NASA builders, scientists, and leaders who built, worked and tried the driver more than 14 years old are honored, his final resting place is in the western edge of Endeavor Crater, a scientific group called Perseverance Valley.
2003 July 7 The rover started in 2004 January 25 Descended by Meridiani Planum Mars. His initial mission was for a little over three months. for nearly 15 years, traveling 28.06 miles (about 45 km) – the farthest distance that any non-planetary robot has reached
It was the second double rover sent to the planet in 2003. as a Mars Exploration Rover (MER) mission. First Rover, Spirit, 2009 Stuck in a sand trap. NASA officially announced its mission in 2011.
Opportunity to find some landmark discoveries in Mars, pointing to the first meteorite found on another planet, revealing that Meridiani Planum was once immersed in water, studying more than 100 strikes of craters and presenting countless panoramic tablets at a distance of nearly 34 million miles.
After landing in 2004 comprehensive study of mountain and sand dunes. Being able to continue studying about half a mile (730 meters) of the Victorian crater from 2006 to 2008, revealing how water got into the region and left it billions of years ago.
2011 Crater 13.7 miles wide, after three years of travel. He discovered a vivid plaster mineral vein. At that time, Steve & # 39; s Squyres, the main investigator of the mission, said: "This tells the story that water flows through underground fractures in the rock." He also seized the image of the whirlwinds of the notorious "dust devils", and sometimes the surface of Mars
. 2005 Opportunity joined the dune – a fate that shocked and eventually demanded its double robot. On Earth, NASA has been working to simulate Mars soil before exercising a thorough maneuver to take advantage of the opportunity. Rover 2007 He sounded the first dust storm, mitigated the problems with the intermittent wheels and worked with the problematic robot arm throughout his expedition.
However, it seemed that no one could knock out a terrible robot explorer. She celebrates her first self on her 5,000th day of Mary.
The ability to survive in the descending valley, occasionally hitting the orbits of the dear ones – or perhaps in the distant future, to extract and idolize as a pioneer, pointing the first people to the path of Mars and even settling down.
"It is precisely because of random missions like Opportunity that the day will come when our brave astronauts will walk on the surface of Mars," said Bridenstin.
The robot has survived the NASA curiosity, which remains the only active rover on the march surface. It will be joined by NASAand European Space Agency Rover, launched in 2020.
