Opportunity sol 5000 self-portrait: official and amateur-processed versions
Opportunity sol 5000 self-portrait: official and amateur-processed versions Several members of the MER mission team worked together to help Opportunity celebrate her 5,000th day on Mars Feb. 16, 2018. Using the Microscopic Imager (MI), the robot took most of her self-portrait that sol, and then added to it a week later to include her right wheel(s). JPL visualization producer Doug Ellison, MER Engineering Camera Payload Uplink Lead, oversaw the processing of the black and white official NASA version on left. James Sorenson processed the version on right with Don Davis colorizing it using a realistic Mars palette. NASA / JPL-Caltech / D. Ellison / J. Sorenson, D. Davis
