A sandstorm, which began just over a week ago, has outgrown North America, endangering the safety of the Opportunity rover.
At the moment the rover, which depends on sunlight to recharge its batteries, has suspended all activity to save energy while waiting for the storm to end.
It is certainly not the first time that Opportunity faces a similar challenge, but in this case we are just at the beginning of the “storm season” and the magnitude of this storm does not promise anything good!
