Thumbs up Mars orbiter HiRISE takes a picture of "Opportunity"

This is a great shot. They send the rover Opportunity millions of miles into space and then take a picture of it. Great stuff

The device cost $ 40 million, and its weight is 65 kilograms. The camera is a reflector telescope with an aperture of 0.5 m. This telescope is the largest telescope sent into deep space. Camera resolution reaches 30 cm per pixel when located at an altitude of 300 km above the surface of Mars. The swath width is up to 6 km.
