 This is what's great about NASA and it's what's
 great about people. These are world-class
 engineers. When they sent a rover to another
 planet they could have easily looked at it as just
 another scientific tool. But people don't do that.
 We can and will get emotionally attached to the
 most inanimate of objects. We can and will
 anthropomorphize anything. And frankly
 Opportunity's camera mast looks like a little
 face with eyes and everything, so why not?
 So they started calling it her.
 They nicknamed her Oppy.
 They told her to take a selfie not long ago.
 After 15 years of Oppy flipping the double bird
 to her original 90 day life expectancy, when a
 planet-spanning dust storm finally knocked her
 out and she stopped responding to the

 And after 8 months and allmost 1000

 finally clear that Oppy
 up, the last thing these world-class NASA
