Opportunity rover waits out a huge dust storm on Mars

Opportunity, or Oppy as the JPL team calls him, is in trouble. An Epic dust storm is engulfing him, a storm far larger than the 2007 planetary encircling event. He has to use a bit of battery to keep warm and he did not bring any Pu.

Not bad for 5111 sols into a 90 sol mission...tears will likely be shed.

Spirit survived several dustings before it got stuck. Opportunity.. might. After all, Martian AAA seems to come along and sweep off the dust and clean the windscreens every now and then.

a good indicator of emotional fragility is whether that comic strip makes you weepy (she said, wiping away a tear).
