Yeah that was last night's movie watching, and pretty well done.
Light on the scientific discoveries, and more of a "feels" movie, but I was okay with that, and the overall background and progression of such a long mission was nicely played out. Hopefully inspirational for up-and-comers too. Who wouldn't want to work where you get to make a giant Mars sandbox to test stuff out?

Yea, there was a lot of "tell us how Opportunity's memory corruption reminds you of your grandmother." But I guess that type of stuff is a lot cheaper than explaining the science. I still liked it, but there were a few places I was reaching for the fast forward button.

The Spirit and Opportunity rovers hit a soft spot for me. I designed two of the PC boards used in the optical system for this project. I have had a number of my designs go into space, but these are my favorites.
