Running a marathon isn’t easy. Tackling the 26-mile, 385-yard endurance trek of accomplishment is for the bucket list of life. Now try that on Mars. That’s what NASA’s Opportunity Rover has been doing for the past decade. The now famous robot celebrates 10 years since launching to the red planet on July 7, 2003 followed by a suspenseful airbag landing on Jan. 24, 2004 at Meridiani Planum.
Don’t forget, this month is Mars Month at Arizona Science Center. Take this opportunity to experience an immersive journey into space with special discounts to the Planetarium.
