WASHINGTON — And the Opportunity rover continues to move along in its trek across the surface of the Red Planet of Mars.

NASA opportunity roverThe Associated Press reports that the Opportunity rover is moving around and will be moving south to avoid a harsh Martian winter. Its sister rover, Spirit, has ceased operation since it got stuck in sand in 2010.

Opportunity has been exploring the Endeavour Crater since 2011 and has discovered deposits dating back to the first billions of years of Mars’ existence. It did discover signs of water, but scientists say that it was more acidic than liquid.

The rovers lasted longer than the expected 3 months when they landed in 2004, and are solar-powered.
