    There is a great story that includes WALL-E here. I hope some of you are familiar with the Mars Landings. Opportunity There's a viral XKCD comic about Spirit, the Mars rover that landed on the planet in 2004 and sent its last message to Earth in 2010. In the comic, released shortly after the rover died, Spirit is sentient — and excited about the possibility of returning to Earth when its mission ends. “Maybe if I do a good enough job, they'll let me come home,” Spirit thinks in one panel. Then the rover gets stuck in a sandstorm. Its last words are: “Did I do a good job? Do I get to come home? Guys?” The comic lands an emotional punch by making you imagine what it would be like to be all alone on Mars until you die. “WALL-E” came out two years before Spirit, so we were already primed to cry over a fictional robot. Three weeks after Spirit landed on Mars, Opportunity joined it there. And this week, Opportunity died. The reaction online showed how the Spirit comic inserted emotion into the way online culture talks about space. Someone created a riff on that comic, in which the Grim Reaper tells Opportunity it's time to go. (“Was I a good boy?” the rover asks. “No,” Death responds, “I'm told you were the best.") Others were touched by Opportunity's actual last words: “My battery is low and it is getting dark.” But the strongest online outpouring of emotions came from scientists, particularly those who worked on the rover program. Abigail Fraeman, the deputy project scientist for the Mars Exploration Rover mission, wrote in The Post that losing Opportunity was like losing a friend. From her perch in the observation deck overlooking mission control, she described the scene as the team made a final attempt to wake up Opportunity, which had been unreachable for months: "Tuesday’s communication attempts began with a “wake-up song” played at mission control. The mission’s principal investigator, Steve Squyres, had chosen “I’ll Be Seeing You,” as performed by Billie Holiday. At 8:10 p.m., Holiday’s wistful voice floated up from the command floor. “I’ll be seeing you in all the old familiar places that this heart of mine embraces,” she sang. Tears welled in my eyes." -Washington Post
