A 90-day Mission turned into 15 years of great science. Our first rover sent to MARS was a long shot and it worked! Now 15 years later we said goodbye.
NASA just released this short video of some milestones during it's long mission and some difficulties they had navigating an alien planet. Drive along with the NASA’s "Opportunity" Mars rover. The scientists and engineers behind the mission describe what is happening and why it's significant.
From 2004 to 2019, the Mars exploration spanned more than 15 years, when it was only designed to be 90 days . We discovered definitive proof of liquid water on ancient Mars and set the off-world driving record during the mission too!
Here are several other things were only meant to last 90 days and well...... still stuck with them:
- The Floss Dance
- The Kardashians
- My Neighbor's Christmas Lights
- Cardi B
- The Steve Wilkos Show
- Skinny Jeans or Jorts
- Relationships on The Bachelor (some of them actually worked)
- Those sexting pics you sent in high school
