    Do you think anybody believes the electronic circuit was alive for 15 years where the temperature change form -150 degrees C to 20 degrees C every day? There is no such an electronics component that withstand that kind of temperature cycle for 15 x 365 = 5,475 times. Nasa is a real liar.

    NASA didn't lose Opportunity in a storm, they had an argument before Valentines Day and Opportunity is letting the call go to voicemail
