NASA’s Opportunity rover captured spectacular views of Mars
National Geographic’s annual competition, consisting of three categories, nature, cities and people, invites photographers of all levels to submit their most wanderlust-inducing shots. Entries are being accepted until June 30. The grand prize is a 10-day trip for two to the Galápagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions.
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.
