Opportunity’s eye view

Opportunity’s eye view
Opportunity’s eye view This is a false color version of the panorama Opportunity was working on right up to a few sols or Martian days before the planet-encircling dust event (PEDE) caused the robot field geologist to shut down and enter a sleep survival mode in June 2018. From the black areas, it’s clear the rover has some more work to do. MER enthusiast and image processor James Sorenson did the processing honors here. “I hope when or 'if' Opportunity wakes up, that she could continue to finish it,” he said. In addition to processing MER images, he devotes the rest of his spare time to long exposure deep-space astrophotography and 3D printing. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell / ASU / J. Sorenson
