Rut Rho…another amnesia event on Opportunity

Rover Amnesia Event Follows Latest Memory Reformatting. This is a bit disappointing, and it looks like Opportunity’s memory reformatting did not completely resolve its flash drive issue. The rover is still able to operate during the day, but may lose data during the night if more amnesia events occur.

The big issue here is that Opportunity is on the budget chopping block. I personally believe that NASA will find money to continue the mission, but this memory issue does give detractors ammo to argue that Opportunity’s days are numbered.
