Remember: Even if you miss your high fives, you can still land spacecraft on another planet. Dare mighty things!

Looks like we made it: 2,000 sols on Mars, you guys!

I’m looking back on 2,000 Martian days of exploration, and literally looking forward to climbing higher in those to come. The area ahead contains clays I’m eager to investigate: https://t.co/Uk8dCF0tYV
Can you kick it with @NASA? Yes, you can. Get special access to @NASAInSightInSight's launch to Mars if you can share its story in a unique way.

Return to Sender: This meteorite fell to Earth from Mars. A piece of it will remain to help test #Mars2020’s laser. Part will fly back to the Red Planet aboard the rover. Find out why: https://t.co/zVmxt6yHjk
Mystic Crystal Revelations: (Scientific, really.) These tiny crystals may be what's left from an ancient lake on Mars, or when past groundwater moved through sediment. https://t.co/tl7sj3WP5p
@MattLawson76 Yup. Another beautiful sol here in Gale Crater.
