Opportunity: Nine Years on Mars...

Yesterday was the ninth anniversary of Opportunity's landing on Mars.  The plucky little rover was designed to last just 90 days, but it did a little better than that – and it's not done yet.  The panorama below was stitched together from many individual images, and shows over 210° of view from Opportunity's current perch on the rim of Endeavour Crater.  Full resolution version here.  From APOD, of course.
