Rest in peace, @TheRealStanLee. In your honor, here are some friendly neighborhood "spider" formations on Mars. https://t.co/836zuFPIRe #Excelsior
Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A Mars rover, now, about to become the Masters champion. I just completed the 18th hole on the Red Planet! ⛳️

Taking care of business ⚡ After swapping to my Side-A computer last month, I'm back to full operations, including a 60 meter drive and plans to drill later this week. Still troubleshooting my Side-B computer: https://t.co/e2jHXkw76f
I get by with a little help from my friends. Thanks to the team swapping me back to the A-side computer, I took and sent back images this week with a camera I haven’t used since 2013. Work continues to get full operations back on line. https://t.co/01SafGIwDs
Just switched to my Side-A computer so the team can diagnose a tech issue with the B side. (I carry two computers for situations like this.) Redundant systems: don’t leave Earth without them. https://t.co/e2jHXkNHXN

You’re a survivor, you’re not gonna give up.

Hang in there, Oppy! Here’s how the @MarsRovers team will try to reach her now that this dust storm is starting to calm down: https://t.co/BwDJI5PYSL
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.) https://t.co/AgssRU46yh
I shall call her Mini-Me. Build your own robot with these open source rover plans from @NASAJPL 🤖 https://t.co/IDduG0OjPF
@juanjohnjedi The storm has peaked and is starting to clear, however, it could be weeks before it's clear enough over @MarsRovers Opportunity for her to charge up and phone home. Drill bits crossed!
