Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity carries on four thousand sols after arriving on the red planet.

A new banner to mark the occasion and a celebratory graphic for members to play with.

"Amazing" doesn't even begin to cover Oppy. Great tribute, Astro0! smile.gif

On some far future day she'll be in a museum somewhere. However, I'm beginning to think that the curators will have to catch her first. biggrin.gif

Highly remise of me, for Sol 4000 I forgot to post a link to a poemster (poster/poem) that Stuart Atkinson and I created in the lead up to the milestone.

Thought everyone would like to read it. Stu's Astropoetry page here.
