Good Night Oppy is an amazing documentary about the mission to explore the surface of Mars with remote-controlled, unmanned robots.
The film follows Opportunity, the Mars Exploration Rover affectionately dubbed Oppy by her creators and scientists at NASA and her twin sister Sprit [Sprit or Spirit?]. Oppy was originally expected to live for only 90 days but she ultimately explored Mars for nearly 15 years.
