    For a rover that was supposed to last only 90 sols, she's celebrating 10 years and a donut shaped rock.

    It's amazing that Opportunity is still going.

    Congrats to everyone involved :)

    It sure doesn't seem like ten years have passed since the landings. I checked even lol. Wow.. outstanding! That jelly donut rock is flat weird.

    I am looking forward to seeing what kind of graffiti the Martians painted on the side of Opportunity...

    We'll find out when those Mars One kids get over there... :rolleyes:

    I'm with olbriar, I can't believe it's been 10 years....geez, time sure flies. Maybe it has something to do with the Martian air!

    There is obviously life on Mars and they obviously have some sort of police department. I mean, really, why else would there be jelly donuts there?

    It is amazing that Opportunity is still doing her thing though.

    Martian graffiti: Well, the Martians aren't the ones doing the graffiti, the rover is. Check out this tiretrack graffiti. It's true!
