Spirit: A Martian Story · 6:54am April 23rd

You remember this comic?

It's about Opportunity's twin Spirit.

Well, there's a short film of it now, and Spirit is being voiced by none other than Tara Strong!:twilightsmile:

You can watch it here: https://aldrinfoundation.org/spirit-a-martian-story/

Also, shoutout to Daedalus Aegle for letting me know that this even exists.

The Legacy Continues · 7:01pm March 5th

NASA has announced the name of the Mars 2020 Rover today, and it is *drum roll* PERSEVERANCE!

And as you may remember from my earlier blog post this year, Perseverance was one of my favorites among the nine finalists of the Name the Rover Contest.

I'm sure Oppy is smiling right now, in its final resting place Perseverance Valley on Mars, as the journey continues.

As we head into 2020, Opportunity may have earned his retirement in Ponyland, but a new challenger rises. Later this year, a new Mars Rover will head towards the red planet. (Two actually, but ESA has already named their rover Rosalind Franklin.)

Send your name to Mars · 9:49pm Jun 21st, 2019

I just stumbled on this campaign NASA is currently doing. Next year, the latest Mars rover is scheduled to depart for the red planet, and you can submit your name to be etched on a silicate chip that will be carried along with the rover.

It looks like over 7 million people, including yours truly, have already signed up to be part of this mission and carry on Oppy's legacy.
