This painting of NASAs late Mars rover Opportunity might make you sob

first_img Tags Share your voice 17 Photos NASA Opportunity rover witnessed the wild side of Mars Enlarge Image”Oppy” got in on the selfie trend in early 2018 with this self-portrait celebrating its 5,000th day on Mars. NASA/JPL-Caltech A piece of NASA’s heart sits silent on Mars. The space agency called an end to the Opportunity rover’s epic Mars mission this week after months of failed attempts to revive the machine after a massive dust storm in mid-2018 blotted out its solar panels and destroyed its ability to communicate with Earth. Emotional tributes poured out from scientists and space fans alike. Uzbekistani artist Rostislav Shekhovtsov was so moved by the rover’s finale, he created a digital painting to honor Oppy. It’s a tearjerker. It shows two astronauts in the future finding the dust-covered rover on Mars. oppyfound3Artist Rostislav Shekhovtsov created this digital painting in Photoshop. Rostislav Shekhovtsov Shekhovtsov posted the image to Instagram, captioning it with “It’s time to go home, Oppy.” The artist says he created the work in Photoshop over the course of five to seven hours.What makes the art piece all the more touching is how one of the astronauts reaches out to Opportunity’s head-like camera array, an acknowledgement of how many of us have come to treat the rover like a person who should be mourned. Sci-Tech “Oppy is alive for me,” Shekhovtsov tells me. He’s convinced humans will one day fly to Mars and recover the rover.  Opportunity outlasted its original three-month mission in 2004 and delivered over 14 years of scientific discoveries and stunning Mars images.NASA’s longest-lived Red Planet rover couldn’t have earned a more loving tribute than Shekhovtsov’s hopeful and heartbreaking vision of the future.center_img Goodbye, Oppy Mars rovers NASA Space 5 NASA’s history-making Mars rover Opportunity declared dead NASA Mars rover Opportunity earns heartbreaking eulogies: ‘I’m crying’ Commentslast_img read more
