NASA's Opportunity at 10: New Findings from Old Rover

In the Jan. 24 edition of the journal Science, Opportunity Deputy Principal Investigator Ray Arvidson, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, writes in detail about the discoveries made by the rover and how these discoveries have shaped our knowledge of the planet.

The little Rovers that could! What a huge success this program was considering the relatively low cost to launch and maintain through successive extensions.
