Two Explorers
Two Explorers Stuart Atkinson wrote this brilliant piece that perfectly expresses the voyage that the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is undertaking, likening it to the voyage of Captain James Cook. The two explorers are forever linked now, as Opportunity 'sails' towards the crater Endeavour, named after Cook's famous vessel of exploration.
