Maybe on the next rover NASA will install a Sunsetter Retractable Awning to help keep the dust off the solar panels. ;)

That's the spirit!
That's just great. First we lost Hope, then no Job, and now this.
Oh, wait, Spirit is dead too. :(

I hope that they installed wipers for the solar cells on the new rovers!

I disagree. Getting it to the surface without the Martians shooting it down is an accomplishment.

It probably carried small pox and the Martians all died.

Went to a JPL panel at comicon a few years ago. One story was that NASA wouldn't let them put a JPL sticker on the probe, so instead they configured the treads to spell out "JPL" in morse code as they moved. NASA didn't find out until it started driving around. I got a chuckle from that.

RIP Opportunity.
