Guy Gets Opportunity Rover Tattoo to mark final goodbye. There is only one small problem



It is not unusual for people to want to celebrate an important moment or a milestone with a tattoo. Nor is it unusual for people not to thoroughly check what they are doing before they are permanently inked on their skin forever (we look at you, Ariana Grande).

What exactly is what a man did when we finally said goodbye to the opportunity, last week's little Mars Rover.

After 15 years on the red planet that sent back vital data, NASA accepted that the rover had bowed to the dust storm on Mars that had caused it to lose contact again in the summer.

The last message it sent back to Earth was the heartbreaking "my battery is low and it gets dark", which is the message the unknown man tattooed on his right shoulder along with a picture of the plundered old option.

Only that is not it. It's curiosity.

And the Internet does not allow him to live it down.

The tattoo photo was shared by Charles Finch on Twitter, who could quickly point out that it was not his tattoo and to be kind to the person if it is.

Not what stopped people.

It may not be something a casual observer would notice, but if you are in space research enough to get it tattooed on your back, you think you know your robbers.

Although a few people tried to look at the bright side.

Of course, the possibility of having a 90-day mission ended that lasted 15 years and won people's hearts (read the lovely obituary after Tom Whipple for The Times here). In 2003, Opy landed on Mars in March 2004 to roam, gather some data, and probably die, buried under a dust storm that would block his solar panels due to Mars & # 39; lack of protective atmosphere. Instead, it continued until June 2018, when the decaying dust storm, the largest since its arrival, emerged.

With a heroic effort, on June 10, what turned out to be the last of its battery power to send the fateful message — which science reporter Jacob Margolis who first tweeted it — used has clarified, is a "poetic translation" of Oppy's goodbye.

On the other hand, curiosity is alive and well on Mars. Since arriving in 2012, its mission is to explore Crazy Crater and study the Martian climate and geology. Although curiosity never met her older siblings who were 8,400 kilometers away, they sent their own farewell message to the delicate probe.

We do not cry, you cry.

OK, neither of us cries, we still laugh at the idiot, who got the wrong rover tattooed for life.
