5,000 Sols and Climbing

Pictured in the current Astronomy Picture of the Day is Intrepid Crater on Mars. This was imaged in 2010 by Mars Rover Opportunity. Originally planned as a 90 day mission, Opportunity recently passed 5,000 (!!!) days of operations on Mars.

Five thousand days into a ninety day mission. What an achievement!

Click on that image in the link. It's worth a long look.
