What will become of the lost Mars Rover “opportunity” through millions of years?

The death of the brave fell a very hard-working Rover opportunity has been on Mars instead of the planned 90 days as much as 15 years. Its solar panels are likely covered with a thick layer of dust, eventually depriving the Rover energy. Each spacecraft has its own resource, which, as you might guess, can be quite limited. Space is not spared. For example, we previously reported that sent to the space sports car Elon musk was seriously battered by radiation. However, it should be understood that in the construction of the same electric vehicle uses organic fibers and plastics. The Rovers are going from a much more wear-resistant materials. On this basis, the question arises: what will happen to the Mars Rover “opportunity” through hundreds, thousands and millions of years?

Says Professor of planetary science at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and a member of the scientific team of the Rover “opportunity” Jeff Mersch, honestly recognizing that is not an expert in the designs of the Mars Rover, “opportunity” is also used a number of plastic elements, for example, in wire insulation. And it may ultimately decompose under the action of solar radiation.

“Overall, I think the Rover will remain in the condition in which it is now,” the scientist said.

If one day people will be able to find him, then, by this time, he might be a little covered with dust, adds Mersch. “One day” in this context means that the Rover “see” any people who set foot on the red planet over the next several hundred years, as planned, NASA says planetary scientist.

According to the scientist, through a later date, the Rover covered over with a thick layer of dust. “Opportunity” could work on Mars for so long in the first place because quite often the Martian wind constantly blew the dust from its solar. But if we are talking about a longer period, the fate of the Rover is not entirely clear. In the end, win or dust, which, obviously, will accumulate, or the wind that can blow.

“At the same time, I doubt the Rover will be completely covered with dust,” adds Mersch.

What will happen with the remnants of the Rover in a few million years? On the Ground, all dead sooner or later, is buried. But this is due to tectonic processes and movement of water – factors that do not exist on modern Mars. However, the Rover met the same fate, says Mersch.

“If for a long time near the remains of the Rover will fall meteorites, rising from the surface dust in the end, it will fully hide under a” — adds the scientist.

If the dust will accumulate, the Rover will turn into “fossils”, like the bones of dinosaurs on the Earth, and landed here millions of years aliens can seriously be surprised to find an ancient artifact in human history.

At the press conference dedicated to the completion of the mission “opportunity”, the speakers explained that NASA has no plans ever to return the Rover back to Earth. Send especially for this expedition would be in this case very wasteful, especially considering the fact that his job, he still did.

Because people want to one day settle on Mars, adds Mersch, it is likely that the Rover ever will still be found and restored. Maybe someday he will take his place in the Martian Museum, and, perhaps, around the place where he stayed, erect a monument or even a national Park.

If the people on Mars did not fly, “opportunity” will remain in place forever. Although the latter option is unlikely. Over millions of years the remains of the Rover can be destroyed by a falling meteorite.

  1. Wow, awesome blog format! How long have you ever been blogging for? you made blogging glance easy The overall glance of your web site is excellent, let alone the content!

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
