@NASAJPL  @beckW  @NASAh  @CassiniSaturnere  @HiRISE  it’s at: will @NasaPerseverebe  the next NASA mission to explore Mars... with 23 cameras and two microphones. Keep up with all our discoveries and images at #Hyperspace2020 

Well, we're both still here. Keep on keepin' on, friend. There's lots more to explore.

You know how to make a rover feel loved! ♥️ Thank you all for the kind thoughts. While I may not hum "Happy Birthday" to myself anymore (only did that once back in 2013), I *am* baking up some sweet science with my SAM instrument.

It once was one small step... now it's six big wheels. Here's a look at one of them on the soil of Mars#MSL

It seems to me you lived your life like a rover in the wind never fading with the sunset when the dust set in. Your tracks will always fall here, among Mars' reddest hills; your candle's burned out long before your science ever will. #ThanksOppy . I owe you so much.

Best. Road trip. Ever. Feast your eyes on the Martian landscape. #JourneytoMars 

I touched down on #Mars  six years ago. Celebrating my 6th landing anniversary with the traditional gift of iron… oxide. (It puts the red in Red Planet.)
