Views…

By my reckoning – and I haven’t calculated this manually, with a calendar; I’m using an app to work it out for me – it’s now 113 days since we last heard from Opportunity on June 10th. 113 days. That’s a long time. I’m still hopeful we’ll hear from Opportunity, and that she’ll carry on with her mission, but I’d be lying if I said that I was as hopeful as I was 100 days ago, or even a couple of weeks ago. No, not giving up, bit every day we don’t hear from her is more worrying.

After seeing and working with the new HiRISE image of Opportunity that was treleased the other day (which led to lots of breathless media reports of how NASA had “found the lost Mars rover”… sigh… she wasn’t lost, you numpties, just silent – I thought it would be interesting to ferret out some of the older HiRISE images of Opportunity and process those too – so here are some more views of Opportunity. I’m not going to put dates and locations with them, I just want them to serve as a small gallery of views of our sleeping rover.

I hope you enjoy seeing her again.
