Nearly ten years after its launch, NASA’s Opportunity rover analyzed what may be the oldest rock captured, and found its first evidence that Mars once had nonacidic water – the kind of water that could sustain life on Earth. Opportunity is now heading to a new location so that the solar-powered rover can be in a favorable spot before the next Martian winter. Opportunity showed signs of wear, but was otherwise in good health. It recently experienced a bout of amnesia with its flash memory, but it was not serious. (Image Credit: NASA)
