Greeley Panorama on Mars (July 9 2012) Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Cornell/Arizona State U. What did you do over your winter vacation? If you were the Opportunity rover on Mars, you spent four months of it stationary and perched on the northern slope of Greeley Haven -- and tilted so that your solar panels could absorb as much sunlight as possible. During its winter stopover, the usually rolling robot undertook several science activities including snapping over 800 images of its surroundings
I love Chris Hadfield - Canadian Astronaut. He's not only an astronaut, he's teaches lessons about space in space, and he's a musician and plays his guitar in space! He's just a cool dude overall.
