NASA stitched 354 shots of the dead Opportunity rover into a panorama

NASA employees made a panoramic image of 354 photos that the Opportunity all-terrain vehicle took on Mars in the last month of its mission – from March 13 to June 10 last year.

The connection with Opportunity disappeared in June: an all-terrain vehicle was caught in a dust storm that covered the rover’s solar panels. Until February, NASA did not abandon attempts to revitalize the all-terrain vehicle, but the agency finally announced the loss of Opportunity in the Valley of Perseverance.

The rover has worked on the Red Planet since 2004. At first it was supposed that he would serve only ninety days, but his mission lasted almost fifteen years.
