When Eamonn Bourke wants to reflect on the work he has done in the past seven years, all the 29-year-old needs to do is look at the wall in his Alexandria home office. There, in two rows, are 22 skateboards that Bourke has designed for Convoy Skateboards (www.convoyskateboards.com), which he and co-owner Chris Reichert launched in 2005. What began as an idea between two Fairfax roommates who worked at a skate shop is now a full-fledged local brand. Benjamin C. Tankersley/FOR THE WASHINGTON POST
NASA tried one last time to contact its record-setting Mars rover Opportunity, but declared it dead on Feb. 13, 2019, 15 years after arriving at the Red Planet. The solar-powered rover has been silent for eight months, victim of one of the most intense dust storms in decades.
