See Barren Wasteland of Mars Captured Over 12 Years by Mars Opportunity Rover

January 26, 2016 Updated: October 5, 2018    

The Mars Opportunity Rover mission just celebrated its 12th anniversary. It landed on Jan. 24, 2004. While the original mission was just three months, more than a decade of functioning has provided us with a nice collection of photos of the Red Planet.
