It might be time to bid farewell to the Opportunity mars rover. The rover's team made their last attempt to contact Opportunity last night, and the call went unanswered.The last time Opportunity made contact with NASA engineers was June 10. Since then engineers have sent more than 835 recovery commands that remain unanswered. Opportunity and its twin Spirit launched in 2003 and landed on Mars in 2004.

  • NASA Says Farewell To Mars Opportunity Rover

    According to a report by Reuters, on Wednesday, NASA's rover designed to traverse the surface of Mars stopped communicating with Earth after 15 long years of service. Engineers reportedly lost contact with the solar-powered vehicle, named Opportunity, on June 10 of last year during a massive dust storm that enveloped Mars. Since then, NASA officials have made numerous attempts to reach the six-wheeled rover with no success.

  • For The Last Time: NASA Desperately Tries To Communicate With Lost Mars Rover

    Curiosity isn’t NASA’s only rover currently on the red planet. According to Digital Trends, the Opportunity rover has also been on Marx since 2004. But last year, the rover dropped out of communications when it got stuck in an enormous dust storm, and it hasn’t been heard from since. Now NASA scientists are trying a last ditch attempt to contact the rover. They've outline three unlikely but possible scenarios to explain the rover's silence. One is that the rover’s primary X-band radio has failed; the second is that both the primary and secondary X-band radios have failed, and the third is that the rover’s internal clock has become offset. NASA will try sending the new commands for several weeks, but if Opportunity doesn’t respond this time, then it’s likely that the mission will have to be abandoned.

  • NASA Says Curiosity Rover Back Up And Running

    According to a report by Digital Trends, NASA has been dealing with a small hiccup in the operations of the Curiosity rover since it went into safe mode last week. The team reportedly managed to resolve the issue and the rover is currently in the process of booting back up. Last Friday, the issue occurred during a boot-up sequence which lead to the systems going into safe mode in order to protect themselves. NASA claims that since the problem was resolved, the rover has managed to boot up over 30 times without any further problems. However, Digital Trends points out that researchers at NASA still don't know exactly what caused the issue and are still collecting data for analysis.
