Opportunity rover sleeps on Mars, will it be able to wake up?

Many of those who love space and the opportunity to explore the Red Planet had entrusted the Opportunity rover with many hopes not only because the technical specifications of this drone were of the highest level but also because this star has always been cloaked in an aura of mystery. , which is increased due to the remoteness to Earth, which has led entire generations to hope that we are not alone in the universe. This rover has indeed led to a large amount of information that is very important to understand what really is on the surface of Mars. But this probe appears to have plunged into a deep sleep.

The Opportunity Roverlike a technological re-edition of a famous fable waiting to be kissed, this time by the Sun, to be able to reactivate and continue his work because due to the great work carried out so far he seems to have completely exhausted his energy. But this drone doesn’t just have the battery problem because a pretty severe sandstorm covered it up making it impossible to recharge the batteries via solar panels. Even if the situation seems to be quite complicated, NASA engineers seem to be quite optimistic about the possibility of putting this little technological gem back into operation because the aforementioned storm did not cause particular damage to the device and also the vital signs are quite encouraging. We should therefore only wait until another storm can discover the solar panels and put the rover back into operation. Another problem is its internal temperature because when Opportunity is running it heats up but if the temperature drops too much, due to long periods of inactivity, a series of problems could be encountered. Fortunately, NASA engineers have thought about inserting plutonium heating systems so there shouldn’t be any problems from that point of view either. However, it is good to keep in mind that Opportunity can withstand temperatures up to a maximum of -55 degrees while the temperature should not drop below -30 so the temperature should not be a big problem. Another problem is its internal temperature because when Opportunity is running it heats up but if the temperature drops too much, due to long periods of inactivity, a series of problems could be encountered. Fortunately, NASA engineers have thought about inserting plutonium heating systems so there shouldn’t be any problems from that point of view either. However, it is good to keep in mind that Opportunity can withstand temperatures up to a maximum of -55 degrees while the temperature should not drop below -30 so the temperature should not be a big problem. Another problem is its internal temperature because when Opportunity is running it heats up but if the temperature drops too much, due to long periods of inactivity, a series of problems could be encountered. Fortunately, NASA engineers have thought about inserting plutonium heating systems so there shouldn’t be any problems from that point of view either. However, it is good to keep in mind that Opportunity can withstand temperatures up to a maximum of -55 degrees while the temperature should not drop below -30 so the temperature should not be a big problem. a number of problems could be encountered. Fortunately, NASA engineers have thought about inserting plutonium heating systems so there shouldn’t be any problems from that point of view either. However, it is good to keep in mind that Opportunity can withstand temperatures up to a maximum of -55 degrees while the temperature should not drop below -30 so the temperature should not be a big problem. a number of problems could be encountered. Fortunately, NASA engineers have thought about inserting plutonium heating systems so there shouldn’t be any problems from that point of view either. However, it is good to keep in mind that Opportunity can withstand temperatures up to a maximum of -55 degrees while the temperature should not drop below -30 so the temperature should not be a big problem.

A serious problem could be represented by a bad functioning of the watch because if you have to wake up in a period of time without sunlight it could run into serious problems. Will this technological Sleeping Beauty ever wake up? Keep following us to stay updated.
