Good Night Oppy is a feel-good film. It follows NASA’s Opportunity rover as the device explores Mars. Oppy was expected to last 90 days. It lasted 15 years. It sent back valuable information. “We did so much more than we ever thought we could,” Ashley Stroupe told TIME for Kids. She’s a robotics engineer. She worked on the rover.

Ryan White is the film’s director. He calls Oppy’s mission “a great example of people coming together to do something great for humanity.” Good Night Oppy is streaming on Amazon Prime.
