Good Night Oppy
Nov 24, 2022
Good Night Oppy is an amazing award-winning documentary about the mission to explore the surface of Mars with remote-controlled, unmanned robots. The film follows Opportunity, the Mars Exploration Rover affectionately dubbed Oppy by her creators and scientists at NASA and her twin sister Spirit. Oppy was originally expected to live for only 90 days but she ultimately explored Mars for nearly 15 years. The film also tells the story of the remarkable bond forged between a robot and her humans millions of miles away. A must see film for all-ages.
