NASA will reflected on the work of Mars rover Opportunity during a news conference on Jan. 23.

Opportunity landed on the Red Planet Jan. 24, 2004, three weeks behind a twin rover named Spirit. Both rovers made important discoveries about wet environments that could have supported microbial life on ancient Mars. Spirit stopped communicating with Earth in 2010, but Opportunity is continuing to provide scientific results, and currently is investigating the rim of a crater 14 miles (22 kilometers) wide.
