NASA bids farewell to Mars rover Opportunity

NASA has finally called time on Opportunity, a rover designed to roll along the surface of Mars, after it stopped communicating with Earth following 15 years of service. Engineers lost contact with the solar-powered vehicle on June 10 during a dust storm that encircled Mars. The vehicle was built to drive six-tenths of a mile, but ended up covering 28 miles.

The red planet is a little lonelier. Thank you for your service, you glorious machine.

I remember when Opportunity landed; it feels like a lifetime ago. If NASA can make a Mars rover that lasts 15 years, surely Apple can make a phone that lasts 15 months.
