Personally, I'm still waiting for this to happen - after all, finding water anywhere in the universe really isn't such a big hullabaloo in my view, but now if you would find beer...

Again via Slashdot: https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/13/world/mars-opportunity-rover-final-photo-scn-trnd/index.html

It's going to be sad to see the end of Opportunity, I have followed the two rovers since the first day on mars after they landed.  I suppose there is always Curiosity now.
