NASA’s Opportunity rover captured spectacular views of Mars
People gather on the Mall in Washington during the ACT to End Racism Rally on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. The day-long event was organized by the National Council of Churches, a network of 38 mostly progressive denominations — white and black — as well as several major African American Christian umbrella groups and the largest American Jewish denomination, among others.

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.
