NASA's Mars rover 'Opportunity

 After spending nearly five months conducting experiments in one spot, the NASA Mars rover 'Opportunity' moved for the first time the week of May 7, rolling off the rock outcrop where it hunkered down for the Martian winter.
 IN SPACE - JANUARY 23: In this handout from the NOAA/National Weather Service's Space Weather Prediction Center, shows the coronal mass ejection (CME) erupting from the sun late January 23, 2012. The flare is reportedly the largest since 2005 and is expected to affect GPS systems and other communications when it reaches the Earth's magnetic field in the morning of January 24.

The solar-powered rover beamed back images of the horizon, soil and nearby rocks that are unlike any it has seen during its seven years roaming the Martian plains. (AP Photo/NASA) 

 This Aug. 9, 2011 image provided by NASA shows a view from the Mars Rover Opportunity from the Western rim of the Endeavour Crater. This crater -- with a diameter of about 14 miles -- is more than 25 times wider than any that Opportunity has previously approached during the rover's 90 months on Mars. (AP Photo/NASA)

 This artist's rendering provided by NASA shows of the Mars Rover, Opportunity, on the surface of Mars. Opportunity reached the rim of the Endeavour crater in August, 2011. The arrival gave the rover access to geology different from any it explored during its first 90 months on Mars. (AP Photo/NASA)
