NASA's Opportunity rover was built for a three-month mission on Mars, but continues to return valuable scientific data 10 years later. NASA will reflect on the rover's work in a news conference.
The event will originate from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.
Participants will be:
- Michael Meyer, lead scientist, Mars Exploration Program, NASA Headquarters, Washington
-- Ray Arvidson, Mars Exploration Rovers deputy principal investigator, Washington University, St. Louis, Mo.
-- John Callas, Mars Exploration Rovers project manager, JPL
-- Steve Squyres, Mars Exploration Rovers principal investigator, Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y.
