In 2004, NASA scientists and engineers anxiously looked on as their exploration rover Opportunity touched down on Mars. Designed to survive only 90 days, the robot—lovingly dubbed “Oppy”—set out to search for traces of life on the dusty Red Planet. Surpassing all expectations, the resilient rover kept on going; what was intended to be a short-lived mission became an epic expedition lasting nearly 15 years. Pairing extraordinary archival footage with unmatched visual effects from Industrial Light & Magic (of STAR WARS fame), Ryan White’s GOOD NIGHT OPPY charts the rover’s unforgettable journey and the indescribable bond forged between man and machine millions of miles away. An Amazon Prime Video Release.
