The dust storm on Mars continues its decay with atmospheric opacity (tau) over the rover site decreasing. It is expected that Opportunity has experienced a low-power fault and perhaps, a mission clock fault and then, an up-loss timer fault
NASA warned that a solar storm that's similar to the in 1859 Carrington Event would eventually lead to the decimation of Earth. But there's a Harvard professor who became famous for him Oumuamua extrasolar asteroid theory, and he came with a proposal. He seems to have a $100 billion solution to the catastrophe .com
A dust storm continues to envelop the Red Planet and Curiosity's labs are back in action. Transcript: The Mars Report: July 3, 2018. Opportunity Rover. NASA's Opportunity Rover is weathering a massive global dust storm. Less sunlight means the solar-powered rover can't generate power. The rover entered sleep mode to conserve energy A devastating solar storm which could wipe out communications on Earth and fry power grids is a matter of 'when, not if' the head of the Met Office's Space Weather Monitoring centre has warned Massive solar storm that will slam Earth TOMORROW could knock out power supplies, damage satellites and trigger stunning auroras. Nasa spotted a solar flare releasing a coronal mass ejection. The solar storm of 2012 was an unusually large and strong coronal mass ejection (CME) event that occurred on July 23 that year. It missed the Earth with a margin of approximately nine days, as the equator of the Sun rotates around its own axis with a period of about 25 days. The region that produced the outburst was thus not pointed directly towards the Earth at that time
Right now, NASA's Opportunity rover is doing its best to weather an intense dust storm on the surface of Mars — one that could prevent the robot from ever phoning Earth again . Powerful solar storms are not to be taken lightly. as seen by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory in September 2017 A solar storm hits Earth this week, pushing northern lights south. Smacking us right in the magnetosphere, it could make the aurora visible to millions more people than normal

Solar maxima can be intense, as in 1958, or barely detectable, as in 1805, obeying no obvious pattern. The key to the mystery, Dikpati realized years ago, is a conveyor belt on the sun. We have something similar here on Earth—the Great Ocean Conveyor Belt, popularized in the sci-fi movie The Day After Tomorrow NASA says the Earth had a perilous close shave with an extreme solar storm in 2012. The storm, believed to be the most powerful solar event in up to 150 years, missed the Earth by about a week John Callas, Opportunity project manager at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, said the solar-powered rover, with the sun blotted out by an intensifying dust storm already engulfing.
