7 Years on Mars! Happy Anniversary to "Opportunity".

I just became aware today that the Mars Rover "Opportunity" just celebrated its 7th anniversary on the Martian surface! I'm embedding NASA's video marking the anniversary. I assume most folks have forgotten about these amazing vehicles that were only scheduled to last 90 days on the surface. As a child of the space generation who attended the Apollo 11 ticker tape parade in NYC ( I was 2 years old! lol) I have a fascination about space exploration. Enjoy!
