And buried among those stars, if you looked carefully enough, you might find planets, black holes, white dwarves, asteroids, …

   09 Jan 01:00:01   |  Universe Today

Could this be the end of the Opportunity rover? There’s been no signal from the rover since last summer, when a massive global dust storm descended on it. But even though the craft has been silent and unreachable for six-and-a-half months, NASA hasn’t given up. When Opportunity landed at Meridiani Planum on Mars in January …
