Good news! NASA has announced it will continue attempting to contact the Mars rover Opportunity, which went silent in a Martian dust storm earlier this summer. When the storm cleared in September, NASA announced it would try for 45 days to awaken Opportunity. That window closed this week with not contact made. However, scientists are going to keep trying for a few more months, they’ve decided. And why not? The amazing gadget has been exploring Mars for almost 15 years. It was designed for a 90-day mission! You don’t just give up on something like that. If I were a betting man, I’d wager they’ll hear from Opportunity again.
