Episode 11: Red Rover
At the end of January 2004, the Opportunity Lander descended onto Mars for what was supposed to be a short mission. However, the NASA Rover ended up surviving on the Red Planet for 15 years! After so much time, the scientists and much of the world became attached to their resilient buddy, giving her the nickame, "Oppy." In June of 2018, after a severe storm on the Martian surface, she finally stopped communicating and on February 13 of 2019, NASA finally gave up on ever receiving another transmission from her. We decided to write a heartfelt song dedicated to this bittersweet story and we hope you enjoy it!
