To the robot who turned 90 days into 15 years of exploration:

You were, and are, the Opportunity of a lifetime.

Rest well, rover. Your mission is complete.

Here’s a good one- when @SolarGirl2018 says close to the sun, she means it. Parker Solar Probe gets to the 4 yard line. And on top of it she brought Gene Parker along for this talk! #MARS2019

Quoted @VP

Congratulations to the entire @MarsRovers team. Through ingenuity and hard work, you turned a 90-day mission into 15 years. #ThanksOppy for showing us the beauty and wonder of Mars. You made the country proud!

It's a pleasure and honor to serve. With hope, our rover tracks on Mars have helped to blaze a trail that human explorers will one day walk.

Ultimately, it was the most intense dust storm in recorded Martian history that brought this epic mission to a close. https://go.nasa.gov/2E9PG3Y

Opportunity trekked more than a marathon’s distance and set the off-world driving record, spotting dust devils along the way. https://go.nasa.gov/2E805wR

Oppy proved beyond a doubt that ancient Mars had lots of liquid water. These hematite spheres, nicknamed "blueberries," formed in the presence of H2O. https://go.nasa.gov/2E8bmx2
