NASA's 15-year-old Opportunity rover has had a rough couple of weeks on Mars.
Back on May 30, a pretty big dust storm was spotted on the Martian surface, and Opportunity was right in its path. Since then, it's only gotten bigger.
On June 12, it had reached 35 million square kilometres (14 million square miles), basically covering a quarter of the planet.
And earlier this week, NASA has confirmed that the storm is now a 'planet-encircling' or 'global' dust event, and showing no signs of backing off soon.
As soon as the storm hit, solar powered Opportunity put itself in a low power mode to preserve the energy it has.
