Mars, if you’re listening “It is comforting to see the rover again,” said MER PI Steve Squyres in September 2018 when Opportunity was imaged by HIRISE. Author and astronomy outreach educator, Stuart Atkinson processed a closer-up version the HiRISE image (left). Opportunity is right in the middle of the image. Searching for a little levity, he processed a solar array image the robot took some time ago, and then added the jokester plea seen on dirty vehicles around the world.
