Meanwhile, the dust blotting out t
As a giant dust storm roars across a quarter of the face of Mars, NASA's Opportunity rover is facing possible extinction. In a teleconference, NASA engineers announced today that mission control at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California has lost contact with the unmanned probe, as the storm prevents the craft's solar panels from charging its batteries...
