I can’t believe I’m crying over a small, exhausted robot that metaphorically breathed its last about eight months ago being declared dead. No, scratch that, I absolutely can. #Opportunity Spirit and Opportunity, the @MarsRovers of our hearts, were with me since they launched in 2003. They kickstarted my fascination with space, and by proxy with science and engineering.

So about that NYT Opinion piece, you know which one I’m talking about. I went ahead and read it out of morbid curiosity and, well, I have some thoughts. The author, Andrea Long Chu, is making a really good point... in a really, really bad way. For those of you who haven’t read it: her thesis boils down to “I have had bad experiences with transition, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have the right to do so.”
